%N Sum of the altitudes of the leftmost valleys of all Dyck paths of semilength n (if path has no valley, then this altitude is taken to be 0).

%C a(n)=Sum(k*A097607(n,k), k>=0).

%C The positive terms form the partial sums of A000344.

%F G.f.: z^3*C^5/(1-z), where C=(1-sqrt(1-4*z))/(2*z) is the generating function of the Catalan numbers (A000108).

%F Conjecture: (n+2)*a(n) -4*(2*n+1)*a(n-1) +2*(10*n-9)*a(n-2) +17*(2-n)*a(n-3) +2*(2*n-7)*a(n-4)=0. - _R. J. Mathar_, Jul 24 2012

%F a(n) ~ 5*4^n/(3*sqrt(Pi)*n^(3/2)). - _Vaclav Kotesovec_, Mar 21 2014

%F a(n) = 5*Sum_{k=2..n-1}(binomial(2*k,k-2)/(k+3)). - _Vladimir Kruchinin_, Mar 15 2016

%e a(4)=6 because the Dyck paths of semilength 4 with leftmost valley at a positive altitude are UUDUDDUD, UUDUDUDD, UUDUUDDD, UUUDDUDD and UUUDUDDD, where U=(1,1) and D=(1,-1); these altitudes are 1, 1, 1, 1 and 2, respectively.
