A128729 Number of skew Dyck paths of semilength n with no UDL's. 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 steps in it. 1

FORMULA

G.f.=G=G(z) satisfies z^2*G^3-z(2-z)G^2+(1-z^2)G-1+z+z^2 =0.

EXAMPLE

a(2)=2 because we have UDUD and UUDD (UUDL does not qualify).

MAPLE

eq:=z^2*G^3-z*(2-z)*G^2+(1-z^2)*G-1+z+z^2=0: G:=RootOf(eq, G): Gser:=series(G, z=0, 30): seq(coeff(Gser, z, n), n=0..27);
