A010683 Let S(x,y) = number of lattice paths from (0,0) to (x,y) that use the step set { (0,1), (1,0), (2,0), (3,0), ....} and never pass below y = x. Sequence gives S(n-1,n) = number of 'Schröder' trees with n+1 leaves and root of degree 2. 13

%C a(n) = number of compound propositions "on the negative side" that can be made from n simple propositions.

%C Convolution of A001003 (the little Schröder numbers) with itself. - _Emeric Deutsch_, Dec 27 2003

%C Number of dissections of a convex polygon with n+3 sides that have a triangle over a fixed side (the base) of the polygon. - _Emeric Deutsch_, Dec 27 2003

%C a(n-1) = number of royal paths from (0,0) to (n,n), A006318, with exactly one diagonal step on the line y=x. - _David Callan_, Mar 14 2004

%C Number of short bushes (i.e., ordered trees with no vertices of outdegree 1) with n+2 leaves and having root of degree 2. Example: a(2)=7 because, in addition to the five binary trees with 6 edges (they do have 4 leaves) we have (i) two edges rb, rc hanging from the root r with three edges hanging from vertex b and (ii) two edges rb, rc hanging from the root r with three edges hanging from vertex c. - _Emeric Deutsch_, Mar 16 2004

%C The a(n) equal the Fi2 sums, see A180662, of Schröder triangle A033877. - _Johannes W. Meijer_, Mar 26 2012
