COMMENTS

This sequence is related to paired pattern P_2 in Pan and Remmel's link.
By symmetry, it is also the number of NorthEast lattice paths from (0,0) to (n,n) that bounce off the diagonal y = x to the left exactly three times.

FORMULA

G.f.: ((1 + f(x))^4*x^2*(1 + f(x) + 2*x))/(2*(1  f(x) + (5 + f(x))*x)^4), where f(x) = sqrt(1  4*x).
