FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) = A003258(n) - n + 1. - Ralf Stephan, Feb 24 2004

EXAMPLE

a(3)=3, as: binomial(3,0)=1 and binomial(2,-2)=0 binomial(3,1)=3 and binomial(2,-1)=0 binomial(3,2)=3 and binomial(2,0)=1 binomial(3,3)=1 and binomial(2,1)=2

PROG

(PARI) for (n=1, 100, j=0; while (binomial(n, j)>binomial(n-1, j-2), j++); print1(j", "))
