COMMENTS

For n > 0, a(n)-1 is the sum of the n-th row of Motzkin's triangle (A026300). - Daniel Suteu, Feb 23 2018

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..26.

FORMULA

Recurrence: {a(3) = 14, a(4) = 36, a(1) = 3, a(2) = 6, a(0) = 1, (-3-3*n)*a(n)+(-6-2*n)*a(1+n)+(3+n)*a(n+2)+6+4*n}.

G.f.: ((1/2)*i)*sqrt(t+1)/(t*sqrt(3*t-1))-(1/2)*(t+1)*(-1+2*t)/((t-1)*t).

a(n) = 1 + Sum_{k=0..n} Sum_{t=0..floor(k/2)} binomial(n, 2*t + n - k) * (binomial(2*t + n - k, t) - binomial(2*t + n - k, t-1)), for n > 0. - Daniel Suteu, Feb 23 2018

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 3 because all three directions are permissible from the origin;

a(2) = 6 because all three directions are permissible following the southwestern step and the southwest as well as southeast steps are permissible following the southeastern step, but only the eastern step is permissible following one step east.
