%N Number of UUU's in all skew Dyck paths of semilength n.

%C A skew Dyck path is a path in the first quadrant which begins at the origin, ends on the x-axis, consists of steps U=(1,1)(up), D=(1,-1)(down) and L=(-1,-1)(left) so that up and left steps do not overlap. The length of a path is defined to be the number of its steps.

%F a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n-2} k*A128719(n,k) (n >= 2).

%F G.f.: (2zg - g + 1 - z + z^2)/(2zg + z - 1), where g = 1 + zg^2 + z(g-1) = (1 - z - sqrt(1 - 6z + 5z^2))/(2z).

%F Recurrence: 2*(n+1)*(121*n-348)*a(n) = (1663*n^2 - 4620*n + 1392)*a(n-1) - (2476*n^2 - 11133*n + 11787)*a(n-2) + 5*(n-4)*(211*n-537)*a(n-3). - _Vaclav Kotesovec_, Nov 19 2012

%F a(n) ~ 9*5^(n-3/2)/(2*sqrt(Pi*n)). - _Vaclav Kotesovec_, Nov 19 2012

%e a(3)=4 because each of the paths UUUDDD, UUUDLD, UUUDDL and UUUDLL contains one UUU, while the other six paths of semilength 3 contain no UUU's.
