COMMENTS

Zhi-Wei Sun proved that for any n > 0 we have sum_{k=0}^{n-1} a(k) = n^2*A086618(n-1), and (sum_{k=0}^{n-1}a(k,x))/n is a polynomial with integer coefficients, where a(k,x) = sum_{j=0..k}C(k,j)^2*C(2j,j)*(2j+1)*x^j.

FORMULA

Recurrence (obtained via the Zeilberger algorithm): 9*(n+1)^2*a(n) - (19*n^2+74*n+87)*a(n+1) + (n+3)*(11*n+29)*a(n+2) - (n+3)^2*a(n+3) = 0.

a(n) ~ 3^(2*n+1/2) / Pi. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 27 2014

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 55 since sum_{k=0,1,2} C(2,k)^2*C(2k,k)(2k+1) = 1 + 8*3 + 6*5 = 55.
