FORMULA

a(n) = sum(Catalan(k)*Catalan(2*n-k),k=0..n), n>=0, with Catalan(n)=A000108(n).

O.g.f: Ge(x)=(catao(x)+cata2(x))/2 with catao(x):= sum(Catalan(2*k+1)*x^k,k=0..infty) = (cata(sqrt(x)) - cata(-sqrt(x)))/(2*x), with the o.g.f. cata(x) of A000108, and cata2(x):=sum(Catalan(n)^2,n=0..infty) given in A001246 as (-1 + hypergeom( [-1/2,-1/2],[1],16*x))/(4*x).

a(n) = A028364(2n,n) = A067323(2n,n). - Alois P. Heinz, Nov 28 2015

a(n) = (A000108(2*n+1) + A000108(n)^2)/2. - Vladimir Reshetnikov, Oct 03 2016

MAPLE

a:= proc(n) option remember; `if`(n<2, 1+2*n,

      (2*n*(256*n^5-544*n^4+256*n^3+75*n^2-69*n+12)*a(n-1)

       -(8*(4*n-5))*(4*n-3)*(8*n^2+n-1)*(2*n-3)^2*a(n-2))/

      ((2*n+1)*n*(8*n^2-15*n+6)*(n+1)^2))
