%N Expansion of (3 -x -sqrt(1-2*x-3*x^2))/2.

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

%C Essentially the same as A086246. - _R. J. Mathar_, Dec 20 2011

%C 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
