 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Conjecture: Let p > 3 be a 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 A(p) == 0 (mod p^2). (ii) Let B(p) be the (p-1) X (p-1) determinant with (i,j)-entry equal to a(i+j) for all i,j = 1,...,p-1. If p == 1 (mod 3) then B(p) == (-1)^{(p-1)/2} (mod p); if p == 2 (mod 3), then B(p) == 0 (mod p).

FORMULA By Zeilberger's algorithm, we have the following recurrence: (n+2)*(n+4)^2*a(n+3) = (n+3)*(11*n^2+64*n+89)*a(n+2) -(n+2)*(19*n^2+94*n+108)*a(n+1)+9*(n+1)^2*(n+3)*a(n). Recurrence (order 2): (n-1)*(n+1)^2*a(n) = 2*n*(5*n^2-2)*a(n-1) - 9*(n-1)^2*(n+1)*a(n-2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 25 2013 a(n) ~ 3^(2*n+3/2)/(4*Pi*n). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 25 2013 G.f.: ((1-3*x)*hypergeom([1/3, 1/3],[1],27*(x-1)*x^2/(1-9*x))/(1-9*x)^(1/3)-1)/(6*x). - Mark van Hoeij, Nov 12 2023 MATHEMATICA a[n_]:=Sum[Binomial[n, k]^2*Binomial[2k, k+1], {k, 0, n}] Table[a[n], {n, 0, 20}] CROSSREFS Cf.
