FORMULA

l(c, r) = 1/2 C(c+r-3, r) + 1/2 d(c, r), where d(c, r) is C((c + r - 3)/2, r/2) if c is odd and r is even, 0 if c is even and r is odd, C((c + r - 4)/2, r/2) if c is even and r is even, C((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)^11*(x+1)^5). [Colin Barker, Aug 06 2012]

a(n) = (1/(2*10!))*(n+2)*(n+4)*(n+6)*(n+8)*(n+10)*((n+1)*(n+3)*(n+5)*(n+7)*(n+9) + 1*3*5*7*9)- (1/6)*(1/2^8)*(n^4+22*n^3+170*n^2+539*n+579)*(1/2)*(1-(-1)^n). [Yosu Yurramendi, Jun 23 2013]
