 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 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS a(n) is the number of Lah partitions of a set of size 2n with n blocks. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..15. FORMULA a(n) = binomial(2n-1,n-1)*(2n)!/n! (for n>0). D-finite with recurrence (n+1)*a(n+1) = 4*(2n+1)^2*a(n) - delta(n,0). a(n) ~ 2^(4*n)*n^n*exp(-n)/sqrt(2*n*Pi). a(n)*a(n+2) - a(n+1)^2 is >= 0 and is a multiple of 2^(n+3) for all nonnegative n. a(n) == 0 (mod 10) for n>3. E.g.f.: 1/2 + K(16x)/Pi, where K(z) is the complete elliptic integral of the first kind, which can also be written as a Legendre function of the second kind. a(n) = Catalan(n)*C(2*n-1,n)*(n+1)!. - Peter Luschny, Oct 07 2014 a(n) = A125558(n)*(n+1)! = A090181(2*n,n)*(n+1)!. - Peter Luschny, Oct 07 2014 a(n) = (2/n)*(Gamma(2*n)^2/Gamma(n)^3) for n>0. - Peter Luschny, Oct 17 2014 MAPLE A187535:= n -> if n=0 then 1 else binomial(2*n-1, n-1)*(2*n)!/n! fi; seq(A187535(n), n=0..12); MATHEMATICA a[n_]:=If[n==0, 1, Binomial[2n-1, n-1](2n)!/n!] Table[a[n], {n, 0, 12}] (* Alternative: *) a[n_] := Binomial[2*n, n] FactorialPower[2*n - 1, n]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 15}] (* Peter Luschny, Jun 15 2022 *) PROG (Maxima) a(n) := if n=0 then 1 else binomial(2*n-1, n-1)*(2*n)!/n!; makelist(a(n), n, 0, 12); (Sage) [catalan_number(n)*binomial(2*n-1, n)*factorial(n+1) for n in range(15)] # Peter Luschny, Oct 07 2014 CROSSREFS Cf.
