 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Conjecture: Let p be any odd prime. (i) Let A(p) be the p X p determinant with (i,j)-entry equal to a(i+j) for all i,j = 0,...,p-1. Then we have A(p) == (-1)^{(p-1)/2} (mod p). (ii) Let B(p) be the p X p determinant with (i,j)-entry equal to b(i+j) for all i,j = 0,...,p-1, where b(n) denotes sum_{k=0}^n binomial(n,k)^2*binomial(2k,k)*4^k or sum_{k=0}^n binomial(n,k)^2*binomial(2k,k)*(-2)^(n-k). Then B(p) is congruent to the Legendre symbol (p/3) modulo p.

FORMULA By Zeilberger's algorithm, we have the following recurrence: 225*(12*n+43)*(n+1)^2*(n+2)^2*a(n) - (n+2)^2*(3108*n^3+20869*n^2+42172*n+26271)*a(n+1) + (n+3)*(420*n^4+4037*n^3+13835*n^2+19872*n+9840)*a(n+2) = (n+1)*(n+3)*(12*n+31)*(n+4)^2*a(n+3). a(n) ~ 5^(2*n+5/2)/(32*Pi*n^2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 25 2013 MATHEMATICA a[n_]:=Sum[Binomial[n, k]^2*4^k*CatalanNumber[k], {k, 0, n}] Table[a[n], {n, 0, 20}] CROSSREFS Cf.
