 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS Hankel transform is A158501. Row sums of the Riordan array ((1+2x)/sqrt(1+4x), xc(-x^2))=((1-x^2)/(1+x^2),x/(1-x)^2)^{-1}, where c(x) is the g.f. of A000108. With the proviso that the negative signs be ignored, a(n)=the sum of the consecutive pairwise products of the terms in row(n) of Pascal's triangle. For example, the seventh row for row(6) has the terms 1,6,15,20,15,6,1 giving a sum of 2*(1*6+6*15+15*20)=792=a(6). For row(10) the terms are 1,9,36,84,126,126,84,36,9,1 giving 2*(1*9+9*36+36*84+84*126)+126*126=43758=a(10). - J. M.
