COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of lattice paths (allowing only north and east steps) starting at (0,0) and ending at (2n,9n) that stay below the line y=9/2x and also do not contain a proper subpath of smaller size.

FORMULA

Conjectural o.g.f.: Let E(x) = exp( Sum_{n >= 1} binomial(11*n,2*n)*x^n/n ). Then A(x) = ( x/series reversion of x*E(x) )^(1/11) = 1 + 5*x + 70*x^2 + 1696*x^3 + .... Equivalently, [x^n]( A(x)^(11*n) ) = binomial(11*n, 2*n) for n = 0,1,2,....  Peter Bala, Jan 01 2020


EXAMPLE

a(2) = 70 since there are 70 lattice paths (allowing only north and east steps) starting at (0,0) and ending at (4,18) that stay below the line y=9/2x and also do not contain a proper subpath of small size; e.g., ENNENNENNNNNNENNNNNNNN is a factorfree Dyck word but ENEENENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN contains the factor ENENNNNNNNN.
