 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Previous name: Number of (s(0), s(1), ..., s(n)) such that s(i) is a nonnegative integer and |s(i) - s(i-1)| <= 1 for i = 1,2,...,n, s(0) = 2, s(n) = 2. Also T(n,n), where T is the array in A026323. Number of paths in the plane x >= 0 and y >= -2, from (0,0) to (n,0), and consisting of steps U = (1,1), D = (1,-1) and H = (1,0). For example, for n=3, we have the 7 paths: HHH, UDH, HUD, UHD, HDU, DUH, DHU. - José Luis Ramírez Ramírez, Apr 20 2015 LINKS G. C.
