%N Alternate partial sums of the binomial coefficients binomial(3*n,n).

%H Vincenzo Librandi, <a href="/A188676/b188676.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..100</a>

%F a(n) = sum(k=0..n, (-1)^(n-k)*binomial(3*k,k) ).

%F Recurrence: 2*(n+2)*(2n+3)*a(n+2)-(23*n^2+67*n+48)*a(n+1)-3*(3*n+4)*(3n+5)*a(n)=0.

%F G.f.: 2*cos((1/3)*arcsin(3*sqrt(3*x)/2))/((1+x)*sqrt(4-27*x)).

%F a(n) ~ 3^(3*n+7/2)/(62*4^n*sqrt(Pi*n)). - _Vaclav Kotesovec_, Oct 20 2012
