FORMULA

From Peter Bala, Feb 11 2018: (Start)

a(n) = Sum_{k = 0..n} (-1)^(n-k)*C(n,k)*C(3*n+k,n)*2^k.

a(n) = Sum_{k = 0..n} C(n,k)*C(3*n,k)*2^(n-k),

12*n*(3*n-1)*(3*n-2)*(238*n^2 - 663*n + 457)*a(n) = 2*(150416*n^5 - 644640*n^4 + 1020351*n^3 - 734334*n^2 + 237007*n - 26880)*a(n-1) - (3*n-3)*(3*n-4)*(3*n-5)*(238*n^2 - 187*n + 32)*a(n-2). (End)

a(n) = P_n(0,2*n,3) where P_n(a,b,x) is the n-th Jacobi polynomial with parameters a and b. - Robert Israel, Feb 11 2018

MAPLE

A156886 := proc(n)

    add(binomial(n, k)*binomial(3*n+k, k), k = 0..n);

end proc:

seq(A156886(n), n = 0..20); # Peter Bala, Feb 11 2018

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Sum[ Binomial[n, k] Binomial[3n + k, k], {k, 0, n}]; Array[a, 21, 0] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Feb 11 2018 *)
