%N Sum of horizontal positions of the first peak in all bargraphs of semiperimeter n.

%C Horizontal position is x-coordinate of the start of the leftmost horizontal step of the first peak.

%H A. Blecher, C. Brennan, and A. Knopfmacher, <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/0035919X.2015.1059905">Peaks in bargraphs</a>, Trans. Royal Soc. South Africa, 71, No. 1, 2016, 97-103.

%F G.f.: (2*x^3*(x^2-sqrt(x^4+2*x^2-4*x+1)+1)) / ((1-x)*(-x^2+sqrt(x^4+2*x^2-4*x+1)-2*x+1)^2).

%e For n = 4, a(4) = 1, as only the bargraph with first column of height one and second column of height two has horizontal position 1, all other cases are zero.

%Y Cf. A271941, A273720, A273345.
