COMMENTS

A variant of the Motzkin numbers A001006. Hankel transform is A168050.

Essentially the same as A086246. - R. J. Mathar, Dec 20 2011

FORMULA

Conjecture: n*a(n) +(3-2n)*a(n-1) +3(3-n)*a(n-2)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Dec 20 2011

0 = a(n)*(+9*a(n+1) + 15*a(n+2) - 12*a(n+3)) + a(n+1)*(-3*a(n+1) + 10*a(n+2) - 5*a(n+3)) + a(n+2)*(+a(n+2) + a(n+3)) if n>0. - Michael Somos, Jan 31 2014

a(n) ~ 3^(n+1/2) / (6*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Feb 12 2014
