FORMULA
a(n) = (4*n+4)*(2*n+1)*binomial(2*n, n)/(n+2).
a(n) = 2*(n+5)*(n+1)*a(n-1)/(n*(n+2)) + (8*n-4)*a(n-2)/(n+2).
G.f.: 1/x^2 - (1-6*x+4*x^2)/((1-4*x)^(3/2)*x^2).
E.g.f.: 16*x*exp(2*x)*I_0(2*x) + (2-4*x+16*x^2)*exp(2*x)*I_1(2*x)/x where I_0, I_1 are modified Bessel functions.
a(n) = 2*A110609(n+1). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jan 09 2015
EXAMPLE
For n = 0 the a(0) = 2 paths of length 2 from (0,0) to (0,0) are (0,0)->(1,0)->(0,0) and (0,0)->(0,1)->(0,0).
