A329699 Number of excursions of length n with Motzkin-steps avoiding the consecutive steps UH, HU and HH. 1

COMMENTS

The Motzkin step set is U=(1,1), H=(1,0) and D=(1,-1). An excursion is a path starting at (0,0), ending at (n,0) and never crossing the x-axis, i.e., staying at nonnegative altitude.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+t^3-sqrt(1-4t^2-2t^3+t^6))/(2t^2).

EXAMPLE

a(5)=3 since we have the following 3 excursions of length 5: UUDDH, UUHDH and UDUDH.
