COMMENTS
A quadrisection of A118968.
For n >= 1, a(n-1) is the number of lattice paths from (0,0) to (4n,n) using only the steps (1,0) and (0,1) and which stay strictly below the line y = x/4 except at the path's endpoints. - Lucas A. Brown, Aug 21 2020
This is instance k = 4 of the family {c(k, n+1)}_{n>=0} given in a comment in A130564. - Wolfdieter Lang, Feb 04 2024

FORMULA
G.f.: If the inverse series of y*(1-y)^4 is G(x) then A(x)=G(x)/x.
D-finite with recurrence 8*(4*n+1)*(2*n+1)*(4*n+3)*(n+1)*a(n) -5*(5*n+1)*(5*n+2)*(5*n+3)*(5*n-1)*a(n-1)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2012
a(n) = (4/5)*binomial(5*(n+1),n+1)/(5*(n+1)-1). - Bruno Berselli, Jan 17 2014
E.g.f.: 4F4(4/5,6/5,7/5,8/5; 5/4,3/2,7/4,2; 3125*x/256). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jan 23 2018
G.f.: 5F4([4,5,6,7,8]/5, [5,6,7,8]/4; (5^5/4^4)*x) = (4/(5*x))*(1 - 4F3([-1,1,2,3]/5, [1,2,3]/4; (5^5/4^4)*x)). - Wolfdieter Lang, Feb 15 2024
