COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) is always an integer.

The author proved this in the latest version of arXiv:1408.5381. - Zhi-Wei Sun, Sep 01 2014

FORMULA

Recurrence (obtained via the Zeilberger algorithm):

-n^3*(2*n + 5)*(3*n^2 + 12*n + 11)*a(n) + (2*n + 5)*(105*n^5 + 675*n^4 + 1579*n^3 + 1663*n^2 + 768*n+126)*a(n+1) - (2*n + 1)*(105*n^5 + 900*n^4 + 2929*n^3 + 4448*n^2 + 3048*n + 684)*a(n+2) + (n + 3)^3*(2*n + 1)*(3*n^2 + 6*n + 2)*a(n+3) = 0.

a(n) ~ 2^(1/4) * (17+12*sqrt(2))^n / (8 * Pi^(3/2) * n^(5/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 27 2014

EXAMPLE

a(2) = 7 since sum_{k=0,1} (2k+1)C(1,k)^2*C(2+k,k)^2 = 1 + 3*3^2 = 28 = 2^2*7.
