COMMENTS

a(n)=Sum(k*A191781(n,k), k>=0).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..35.

FORMULA

G.f.: g(z) = z*c*(1+z*c^2)/((1-z)*(1-z*c)), where c = (1-sqrt(1 - 4*z^2))/(2*z^2).

a(n) ~ 3*2^(n+1/2)/sqrt(Pi*n). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 21 2014

EXAMPLE

a(4)=13 because in UDUD, UDUU, UUDD, UUDU, UUUD, and UUUU the sum of the lengths of the first ascents is 1 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 3 + 4  = 13.

MAPLE

c := ((1-sqrt(1-4*z^2))*1/2)/z^2: g := z*c*(1+z*c^2)/((1-z)*(1-z*c)): gser := series(g, z = 0, 40): seq(coeff(gser, z, n), n = 1 .. 35);

MATHEMATICA

Rest[With[{c=(1-Sqrt[1-4x^2])/(2x^2)}, CoefficientList[ Series[ (x c (1+x c^2))/((1-x)(1-x c)), {x, 0, 40}], x]]] (* Harvey P. Dale, Jun 19 2011 *)
