The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

%C Hankel transform is A158501. Row sums of the Riordan array

%C ((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.

%C With the proviso that the negative signs be ignored,

%C 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. Bergot_, Jul 26 2012
