Table of n, a(n) for n=0..25.

FORMULA

a(n)=Sum[(-1)^j*(3j+1)binom(2n-3j,n),j=0..floor(n/3)]/(n+1). G.f.=C/(1+z^3*C^3)=C/[(1-z)(1+zC)], where C=[1-sqrt(1-4z)]/(2z) is the g.f. of the Catalan numbers (A000108). - Emeric Deutsch, Dec 14 2007

a(n) ~ 4^(n+2)/(27*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 20 2014

EXAMPLE

a(3)=4 because among the 5 (=A000108(3)) Dyck paths of semilength 3 only UUDUDD does not qualify.

MAPLE

a:=proc(n) options operator, arrow: (sum((-1)^j*(3*j+1)*binomial(2*n-3*j, n), j =0..floor((1/3)*n)))/(n+1) end proc: seq(a(n), n=0..25); - Emeric Deutsch, Dec 14 2007
