A129156 Number of primitive Dyck factors in all skew Dyck paths of semilength n. 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 the path is defined to be the number of its steps. A primitive Dyck factor is a subpath of the form UPD that starts on the x-axis, P being a Dyck path. 2

FORMULA

G.f.=[3-3z-sqrt(1-6z+5z^2)][1-sqrt(1-4z)]/[1+z+sqrt(1-6*z+5*z^2)]^2.

a(n) ~ (5-sqrt(5)) * 5^(n+3/2) / (36*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 20 2014

EXAMPLE

a(2)=3 because in all skew Dyck paths of semilength 3, namely (UD)(UD), (UUDD) and UUDL, we have altogether 3 primitive Dyck factors (shown between parentheses).

MAPLE

G:=(3-3*z-sqrt(1-6*z+5*z^2))*(1-sqrt(1-4*z))/(1+z+sqrt(1-6*z+5*z^2))^2: Gser:=series(G, z=0, 30): seq(coeff(Gser, z, n), n=0..27);

MATHEMATICA
