COMMENTS

For any nonnegative integers m, n the ratio (2*m)!*(2*n)!/(m!*(m+n)!*n!) provides an integer (theorem attributed to Catalan, see Umberto Scarpis in References), and this sequence is the case m = 4*n.

FORMULA

a(n) = (-1024)^n*binomial(4*n-1/2,5*n).

From Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jan 31 2017: (Start)

G.f.: 5F4(1/8,3/8,1/2,5/8,7/8; 1/5,2/5,3/5,4/5; 262144*x/3125).

E.g.f.: 5F5(1/8,3/8,1/2,5/8,7/8; 1/5,2/5,3/5,4/5,1; 262144*x/3125).

a(n) ~ 2^(18*n+1/2)/(sqrt(Pi*n)*5^(5*n+1/2)). (End)
