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 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

If a zero is added in front, the sequence represents the Catalan transform of the squares A000290. [R. J. Mathar, Nov 06 2008]

a(n) is the number of North-East paths from (0,0) to (n+2,n+2) that cross y = x vertically exactly once and do not bounce off y = x to the right. Details can be found in Section 4.4 in Pan and Remmel's link. - Ran Pan, Feb 01 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = (Sum_{k=0..n} (k+1)^3*C(2*n-k,n))/(n+1). - Vladimir Kruchinin, Apr 27 2017

Conjecture: n*(n+4)*(13*n-1)*a(n) -2*(13*n+12)*(2*n+1)*(n+1)*a(n-1)=0. - R. J. Mathar, May 08 2017
