## Central Trinomial Coefficient

The th central binomial coefficient is defined as the coefficient of in the expansion of . The first few are 1, 3, 7, 19, 51, 141, 393, ... (Sloane's A002426). This sequence cannot be expressed as a fixed number of hypergeometric terms (Petkovsek et al. 1996, p. 160). The Generating Function is given by
