 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Starting (1, 3, 9, 27, 83,...), = row sums of triangle A136522. - Gary W. Adamson, Jan 02 2008 Hankel transform is A171552. - Paul Barry, Dec 11 2009 Apparently, for n>=1, the maximum peak height minus the maximum valley height summed over all Dyck n-paths (with max valley height deemed zero if no valleys). - David Scambler, Oct 05 2012 Apparently for n>1 the number of fixed points in all Dyck (n-1)-paths. A fixed point occurs when a vertex of a Dyck k-path is also a vertex of the path U^kD^k. - David Scambler, May 01 2013 LINKS FORMULA Right border of triangle A131429. a(n) = 2*binom(2n,n)/(n+1) - 1. G.f.: [1-sqrt(1-4x)]/x - 1/(1-x). - Emeric Deutsch, Jul 25 2007 (1, 3, 9, 27, 83,...) = row sums of A118976. - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 31 2007 Row sums of triangle A131428 starting (1, 3, 9, 27, 83,...). - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 31 2007 Starting with offset 1 = Narayana transform (A001263) of [1,2,2,2,...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Jul 29 2011 Conjecture: (n+1)*a(n) +2*(-3*n+1)*a(n-1) +(9*n-13)*a(n-2) +2*(-2*n+5)*a(n-3)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 30 2012 EXAMPLE a(3) = 9 = 2*C(3) - 1 = 2*5 - 1; where C refers to the Catalan numbers, A000108.
