Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

FORMULA

a(n) = coefficient of q^0 in Product_{k=1..4*n} (q^(-k) + q^k).

a(n) = A025591(4n) = A063865(4n) = A063867(4n) = 2*A060005(n). Seems to be close to sqrt(3/32Pi)*16^n/sqrt(n^3 + n^2*0.6 + n*0.1385...) and sqrt(n*Pi/2)*A063074(n). - Henry Bottomley, Jul 30 2005

EXAMPLE

a(1)=2: give either the set {1,4} to A and {2,3} to B or give {2,3} to A and {1,4} to B.

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Coefficient[Product[q^(-k) + q^k, {k, 1, 4*n}], q, 0]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 17}] (* Jean-François Alcover, Sep 26 2013 *)
