COMMENTS

One definition of the Catalan numbers is binomial(2*n,n) / (n+1); the current sequence models this definition using the generalized binomial coefficients arising from Euler's totient function (A000010).
When the INTEGERS (2014) paper was written it was not known that this was an integral sequence (see the final paragraph of that paper). However, it is now known to be integral.
Another name could be phiCatalan numbers.  Tom Edgar, Mar 29 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = A238453(2*n,n) / A000010(n+1).


EXAMPLE

We see that A238453(10,5) = 72 and A000010(5+1) = 2, so a(5) = (1/2)*72 = 36.


PROG

(Sage)
[(1/euler_phi(n+1))*prod(euler_phi(i) for i in [1..2*n])/prod(euler_phi(i) for i in [1..n])^2 for n in [0..100]]
