%N Number of Dyck paths of semilength n having exactly one peak of maximum height.

%C Also number of peaks of maximum height in all Dyck paths of semilength n-1. Example: a(3)=3 because in (UD)(UD) and U(UD)D we have three peaks of maximum height (shown between parentheses).

%F G.f.: g(z) = Sum_{j>=1} z^j/f(j)^2, where the f(j)'s are the Fibonacci polynomials (in z) defined by f(0)=f(1)=1, f(j)=f(j-1)-zf(j-2), j>=2.

%F a(n) = A152879(n,1).

%F a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} k*A152879(n-1,k).

%e a(3)=3 because we have UU(UD)DD, UDU(UD)D, U(UD)DUD, where U=(1,1), D=(1,-1), with the peak of maximum height shown between parentheses; the path UUDUDD does not qualify because it has two peaks of maximum height.

%p f[0] := 1: f[1] := 1: for i from 2 to 35 do f[i] := sort(expand(f[i-1]-z*f[i-2])) end do; g := sum(z^j/f[j]^2, j = 1 .. 34): gser := series(g, z = 0, 30): seq(coeff(gser, z, n), n = 1 .. 27);
