 OFFSET 0,5 COMMENTS A variant of the Motzkin numbers A001006. Hankel transform is A168050. Essentially the same as A086246. - R. J. Mathar, Dec 20 2011 Alternatively, this sequence corresponds to the number of positive walks with n steps {-1,0,1} starting at the origin, ending at altitude 1, and staying strictly above the x-axis. - David Nguyen, Dec 01 2016 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..200 C.
