A182887 Number of (1,0)-steps in all weighted lattice paths in L_n. These are paths that start at (0,0) , end on the horizontal axis and whose steps are of the following four kinds: an (1,0)-step with weight 1; an (1,0)-step with weight 2; a (1,1)-step with weight 2; a (1,-1)-step with weight 1. The weight of a path is the sum of the weights of its steps. 1

a(n)=A182884(n)+A182884(n-1).

a(n)=Sum(k*A182886(n,k),k>=0).

FORMULA

G.f.: G=z(1+z)(1-z-z^2)/[(1-3z+z^2)(1+z+z^2)]^{3/2}.

EXAMPLE

a(3)=7. Indeed, denoting by h (H) the (1,0)-step of weight 1 (2), and u=(1,1), d=(1,-1), the five paths of weight 3 are ud, du, hH, Hh, and hhh; the total number of (1,0) steps in them are 0+0+2+2+3=7.

MAPLE

G:=z*(1+z)*(1-z-z^2)/((1-3*z+z^2)*(1+z+z^2))^(3/2): Gser:=series(G, z=0, 32): seq(coeff(Gser, z, n), n=0..28);
