Equals (1/2) * ((A000582) + (A000332 interleaved with zeros)) = (1/2) * ((1, 10, 55, 220, 715...) + (1, 0, 5, 0, 15,...)); where A000582 = binomial(n,9) and A000332 = binomial(n,4).

FORMULA

l(c, r) = 1/2 binomial(c+r-3, r) + 1/2 d(c, r), where d(c, r) is binomial((c + r - 3)/2, r/2) if c is odd and r is even, 0 if c is even and r is odd, binomial((c + r - 4)/2, r/2) if c is even and r is even, binomial((c + r - 4)/2, (r - 1)/2) if c is odd and r is odd.

G.f.: (5*x^4+10*x^2+1)/((x-1)^10*(x+1)^5). [Colin Barker, Aug 06 2012]

a(n) = (1/(2*9!))*(n+1)*(n+2)*(n+3)*(n+4)*(n+5)*(n+6)*(n+7)*(n+8)*(n+9) +(1/6)*(1/2^7)*(n+2)*(n+4)*(n+6)*(n+8)*(1/2)*(1+(-1)^n). [Yosu Yurramendi, Jun 23 2013]
