FORMULA

a(n) = (2*n+1)!!*(n!*Product[(2*k)!/k!/(k+1)!,{k,0,n}])^2. a(n) = (2*n+1)!!*(n!*A003046(n))^2, where A003046(n)is the Product of first n Catalan numbers A000108(n). a(n) = (2*n+1)!*n!/(2^n)*A003046(n)^2. - Alexander Adamchuk, May 17 2006

a(n) ~ A^3 * 2^(2*n^2+3*n+11/12) / (exp(1/4) * n^(7/4) * Pi^(n+1)), where A = 1.2824271291... is the Glaisher-Kinkelin constant (see A074962). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Nov 13 2014
