Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

This sequence is the 6th diagonal below the main diagonal (which itself is A026641) in the array which grows with "Pascal rule" given here by rows: 1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0, 1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1, 1,1,2,2,3,3,4,4,5,5,6,6,7,7, 1,2,4,6,9,12,16,20,25,30, 1,3,7,13,22,34,50,70,95. The Maple programs give the first diagonals of this array.

Apparently the number of peaks in all Dyck paths of semilength n+6 that are 4 steps higher than the preceding peak. - David Scambler, Apr 22 2013

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{j=0..n} (-1)^j * binomial(2*n+k-j, n-j), with k=6.

a(n) ~ 2^(2*n+7)/(3*sqrt(Pi*n)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Apr 19 2014

Conjecture: 2*n*(n+6)*(n+3)*a(n) -(7*n^3+59*n^2+166*n+160)*a(n-1) -2*(2*n+5)*(n+4)*(n+2)*a(n-2)=0. - R. J. Mathar, Feb 19 2016

EXAMPLE

a(4) = C(14,4) - C(13,3) + C(12,2) - C(11,1) + C(10,0) = 7*13*11 - 26*11 + 66 - 11 + 1 = 771.

MAPLE

for k from 0 to 20 do for n from 0 to 40 do a(n):=sum('(-1)^(p)*binomial(2*n-p+k, n-p)', p=0..n): od:seq(a(n), n=0..40):od;

# 2nd program

for k from 0 to 40 do taylor((2/(3*sqrt(1-4*z)-1+4*z))*((1-sqrt(1-4*z))/(2*z))^k, z=0, 40+k):od;
