COMMENTS

Consider the difference between two binomials f(p,k) = binomial(p^k, p^(k - 1)) - binomial(p^(k - 1), p^(k - 2)).

A theorem from the A. I. Shirshov's paper (in Russian) states:

p^(3k - 3) divides f(p,k) for prime p = 2 and k > 2.

p^(3k - 2) divides f(p,k) for prime p = 3 and k > 1.

p^(3k - 1) divides f(p,k) for prime p > 3 and k > 1.

FORMULA

a(n) = (binomial(2^n, 2^(n-1) - binomial(2^(n-1), 2^(n-2))) / 2^(3n-3).

a(n) = (A037293(n) - A037293(n-1)) / 2^(3n - 3).

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 1 is the difference between central binomials C(8,4) - C(4,2) = 70 - 6 = 64 divided by 2^(3*2 - 3) = 64.
