%F From _Peter Bala_, Jan 03 2019: (Start)

%F O.g.f.: A(x) = exp( Sum_{n >= 1} (1/11)*binomial(11*n, 2*n)*x^n/n ) - Bizley. Cf. A274256.

%F Recurrence: a(0) = 1 and a(n) = (1/n) * Sum_{k = 0..n-1} (1/11)*binomial(11*n-11*k, 2*n-2*k)*a(k) for n >= 1. (End)

%e For n=1, the walks are EEEEEEEEENN, EEEEEEEENEN, EEEEEEENEEN, EEEEEENEEEN, EEEEENEEEEN.
