COMMENTS
a(n) is the number of lattice paths on the 3 dimensional grid (using steps(1,1,1),(1,1,-1),(1,-1,1),(1,-1,-1),(-1,1,1),(-1,1,-1),(-1,-1,1)(-1,-1,-1)) that start and end at the origin after 2n steps, not touching the origin at intermediate stages. - Geoffrey Critzer, Feb 05 2012

FORMULA
G.f.: 2-1/G(x) where G(x) = Sum_{n>=0} C(2n,n)^3 x^(2n). - Geoffrey Critzer, Feb 05 2012
a(n) ~ c * 64^n / n^(3/2), where c = 16*Pi^(9/2) / Gamma(1/4)^8 = 0.09252216985965964001991419323555310924034459466... . - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 05 2014, updated Mar 17 2024
