COMMENTS

L_n is the set of lattice paths of weight n that start at (0,0) and end on the horizontal axis and whose steps are of the following four kinds: a (1,0)-step with weight 1; a (1,0)-step with weight 2; a (1,1)-step with weight 2; a (1,-1)-step with weight 1. The weight of a path is the sum of the weights of its steps.

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k>=0} k*A182882(n,k).

G.f.: z(1-z-z^2)/[(1-3z+z^2)(1+z+z^2)]^{3/2}.

(n+3)*a(n)-n*a(n+1)+(-18-4*n)*a(n+2)+(6-n)*a(n+3)+(14+3*n)*a(n+5)+(-5-n)*a(n+6) = 0. - Robert Israel, Dec 30 2016

EXAMPLE

a(3)=5. Indeed, denoting by h (H) the (1,0)-step of weight 1 (2), and u=(1,1), d=(1,-1), the five paths of weight 3 are ud, du, hH, Hh, and hhh; the total number of h steps in them is 0+0+1+1+3=5.

MAPLE

G:=z*(1-z-z^2)/((1-3*z+z^2)*(1+z+z^2))^(3/2): Gser:=series(G, z=0, 35): seq(coeff(Gser, z, n), n=0..28);
