COMMENTS

This is the third member of an infinite series of infinite series, the first two being the Catalan and Motzkin integers. The Catalan numbers lie on the edge of cut 2nomial trees, Motzkin integers on the edge of cut 3nomial trees.
a(n) is the number of increasing unarybinary trees with associated permutation that avoids 213. For more information about increasing unarybinary trees with an associated permutation, see A245888.  Manda Riehl, Aug 07 2014
Number of positive walks with n steps {2,1,1,2} starting at the origin, ending at altitude 1, and staying strictly above the xaxis.  David Nguyen, Dec 16 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = ((36*n+18)*A092765(n)+(11*n+9)*A092765(n+1))/(2*(5*n+3)*(2*n+3)) (based on guessed recurrence).  Mark van Hoeij, Jul 14 2010
A(x) satisfies A(x)+A(x)^2 = A000108(x)1, a(n) = 1/(n)*sum(k=1..n, (C(2*(n),nk))*(1)^(k+1)*C(2*k2,k1)).  Vladimir Kruchinin, May 12 2012
G.f.: (sqrt((22*sqrt(14*x)3*x)/x)1)/2.  Benedict W. J. Irwin, Sep 24 2016
a(n) ~ 4^n/(sqrt(5*Pi)*n^(3/2)).  Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 25 2016
Conjecture: 2*n*(2*n+1)*a(n) +(17*n^253*n+24)*a(n1) +6*(13*n^2+43*n36)*a(n2) 108*(2*n5)*(n3)*a(n3)=0.  R. J. Mathar, Oct 08 2016
a(n) = (1/n)*sum(k=0..n, binomial(n,k)*binomial(n,2n13k)).  David Nguyen, Dec 31 2016
