 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS a(n) is the number of lattice paths (allowing only north and east steps) starting at (0,0) and ending at (3n,5n) that stay below the line y=5/3x and also do not contain a proper sub-path of smaller size. LINKS Daniel Birmajer, Juan B. Gil, Michael D. Weiner, On rational Dyck paths and the enumeration of factor-free Dyck words, arXiv:1606.02183 [math.CO], 2016. P. Duchon, On the enumeration and generation of generalized Dyck words, Discrete Mathematics, 225 (2000), 121-135. FORMULA Conjectural o.g.f.: Let E(x) = exp( Sum_{n >= 1} binomial(8*n, 3*n)*x^n/n ). Then A(x) = ( x/series reversion of x*E(x) )^(1/8) = 1 + 7*x + 133*x^2 + 4140*x^3 + .... Equivalently, [x^n]( A(x)^(8*n) ) = binomial(8*n, 3*n) for n = 0,1,2,.... - Peter Bala, Jan 01 2020 EXAMPLE a(2) = 133 since there are 133 lattice paths (allowing only north and east steps) starting at (0,0) and ending at (6,10) that stay below the line y=5/3x and also do not contain a proper sub-path of small size; e.g., ENEEEENNNNENNNNN is a factor-free Dyck word but ENEENNENNNEENNNN contains the factor EENNENNN.
