FORMULA

G.f.: hypergeom([1/6, 1/3],[1],108*x^2*(4*x+1))^2. - Mark van Hoeij, Oct 29 2011

Recurrence: n^3*a(n) -2*n*(2*n-1)*(n-1)*a(n-1) -16*(n-1) *(5*n^2-10*n+6) *a(n-2) -96*(n-1)*(n-2)*(2*n-3)*a(n-3)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Dec 10 2013

a(n) ~ 2^(2*n-2) * 3^(n+3/2) / (Pi^(3/2) * n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Apr 08 2016

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Sum[ Binomial[n, k]*(-4)^(n - k)*Sum[ Binomial[k, j]^2*Binomial[2k - 2j, k - j]*Binomial[2j, j], {j, 0, k}], {k, 0, n}]; Array[f, 20, 0]

PROG

(PARI) {a(n)=sum(k=0, n, binomial(n, k)*(-4)^(n-k)*sum(j=0, k, binomial(k, j)^2*binomial(2*k-2*j, k-j)*binomial(2*j, j)))};
