COMMENTS

It appears that a(n) is also the number of quivers in the mutation class of affine B_n or affine type C_n for n>=2. [Christian Stump, Nov 02 2010]

FORMULA

n odd: C(2n-1, n-1); n even: C(2n-1, n-1) + C(n-1, n/2-1)

"BIK[ n ](2n-1)" (reversible, indistinct, unlabeled, n parts, 2n-1 elements) transform of 1, 1, 1, 1...

E.g.f.: exp(x)*cosh(x)*BesselI(0, 2*x). - Vladeta Jovovic, Apr 07 2005

G.f.: (1/2)*((1-4*x)^(-1/2)+(1-4*x^2)^(-1/2))   - Mark van Hoeij, Oct 30 2011.

Conjecture: n*(n-1)*a(n) -2*(n-1)*(3*n-4)*a(n-1) +4*(2*n^2-14*n+19)*a(n-2) +8*(n^2+5*n-19)*a(n-3) -16*(n-3)*(3*n-10)*a(n-4) +32*(n-4)*(2*n-9)*a(n-5)=0, n>5. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 09 2013

a(n) ~ 2^(2*n-1)/sqrt(Pi*n). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 29 2014
