COMMENTS

For even n, a maximum matching will be a perfect matching. For odd n there will be one unmatched vertex. - Andrew Howroyd, Jan 01 2018

FORMULA

a(n) = binomial(n, floor(n/2))^3 * floor(n/2)! * ceiling(n/2)!^2 * (2-(-1)^n). - Andrew Howroyd, Jan 01 2018

-8*(n+2)*(9*n^2+34*n+30)*(n+1)^3*a(n)+12*(n+2)*(n^2+5*n+5)*a(n+1)+(n+3)*(9*n^2+16*n+5)*a(n+2) = 0. - Eric W. Weisstein, Jan 06 2018
