COMMENTS

Note that sum_{k=1..n} binomial(n+k-1, n) / n = Catalan(n) = A000108(n).

p divides a((p-1)/2) for prime p = {5, 13, 17, 29, 37, 41, 53, ...) = A002144 Pythagorean primes: primes of form 4n + 1. [Alexander Adamchuk, Dec 27 2013]

FORMULA

G.f.: has an anti-derivative of a hypergeometric function, see Maple program.  - Mark van Hoeij, May 05 2013

Recurrence: 2*n^2*(2*n + 1)*(21*n^2 - 62*n + 46)*a(n) = (1365*n^5 - 6067*n^4 + 9948*n^3 - 7478*n^2 + 2640*n - 360)*a(n-1) - 4*(n-2)*(2*n - 3)^2*(21*n^2 - 20*n + 5)*a(n-2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 02 2014

a(n) ~ 16^n / (3*Pi*n^2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 02 2014

MAPLE

ogf := (4-x)^(1/2)*x^(-3/2)*Int((x+5/4)*hypergeom([1/2, 1/2], [1], 16*x)/((4-x)^(3/2)*x^(1/2)), x) - 5/(8*x);

series(eval(ogf, Int = proc(a, x) int(series(a, x=0, 30), x) end), x=0, 30);  - Mark van Hoeij, May 05 2013
