%N Number of rectangular arrangements of [1,3n] in 3 increasing sequences of size n and n monotonic sequences of size 3.

%C a(n) counts a subset of A025035(n).

%C a(n) counts a more general set than A005789(n).

%C a(n) is also the number of (3*n-1)-step walks on 3-dimensional cubic lattice from (1,0,0) to (n,n,n) with steps in {(1,0,0), (0,1,0), (0,0,1)} such that for each point (x,y,z) we have x<=y<=z or x>=y>=z. - _Alois P. Heinz_, Feb 29 2012
