a(n) = A013609(3*n, 2*n). - Johannes W. Meijer, Aug 22 2013

a(n) = [x^n] hypergeom([1/3, 2/3], [1/2], 27*x). - Peter Luschny, Sep 30 2018

MAPLE

A006588 := n->add( binomial(4*n+1, 2*n-2*k)*binomial(n+k, k), k=0..n): seq(A006588(n), n=0..15);

h := proc(x) hypergeom([1/3,  2/3], [1/2], 27*x) end: ser := series(h(x), x, 20): seq(coeff(ser, x, n), n=0..15); # Peter Luschny, Sep 30 2018
