FORMULA

From Emeric Deutsch, Mar 25 2007: (Start)

a(n) = binomial(2n,n) - 6*binomial(2n-2,n-1) + 8*binomial(2n-4,n-2).

a(n) = (3-n)*binomial(2n,n)/((2*n-3)*(2*n-1)). (End)

E.g.f.: 1 - 4*x + 2*x^2 - x^2*Q(0), where Q(k)= 1 - 2*x/(k+3 - (k+3)*(2*k+3)/(2*k+3 - (k+3)/Q(k+1))); (continued fraction). - Sergei N. Gladkovskii, Apr 29 2013

a(n) ~ -2^(2*n-2)/(sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jun 29 2013

D-finite with recurrence: n*a(n) +2*(-3*n+5)*a(n-1) +4*(2*n-7)*a(n-2)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Jan 23 2020
