COMMENTS

The class of a Motzkin path is the set of indices i such that the ith nondown step is an east step. For n > 0, a(n) is the number of pairs (P,Q) of Motzkin paths such that P and Q have the same class and P lies below or is equal to Q.
Conjecture: This sequence is the binomial transform of A151347.
The Defant article gives a functional equation that defines a generating function Q(x,y,z) such that Q(x,0,0) is the ordinary generating function of this sequence.
