 A146205 Number of paths of the simple random walk on condition that the median applied to the partial sums S_0=0, S_1,...,S_n, n odd (n=15 in this example), is equal to half-integer values k+1/2, -[n/2]-1<=k<=[n/2]. 4

%N Number of paths of the simple random walk on condition that the median applied to the partial sums S_0=0, S_1,...,S_n, n odd (n=15 in this example), is equal to half-integer values k+1/2, -[n/2]-1<=k<=[n/2].

%C 1) Closed-form expressions for sequences see Pfeifer (2010).

%C 2) The median taken on partial sums of the simple random walk represents the market price in a simulation model wherein a single security among non-cooperating and asymetrically informed traders is traded (Pfeifer et al. 2009).

%C 3) A146207=A146205+(0,A146206) see lemma 2 in Pfeifer (2010).
