%N The number of weakly alternating bargraphs of semiperimeter n. A bargraph is said to be weakly alternating if its ascents and descents alternate. An ascent (descent) is a maximal sequence of consecutive U (D) steps.

%F G.f.: g(z) = (13z+3z^2  Q)/(2z(1z)), where Q = sqrt((13z+z^2)(13z+5z^24z^3)).
%e a(4)=3 because the 5 (=A082582(4)) bargraphs of semiperimeter 4 correspond to the compositions [1,1,1],[1,2],[2,1],[2,2],[3] and the corresponding drawings show that only [1,1,1],[2,2], and [3] lead to weakly alternating bargraphs.
