Families of Linear Recurrences for Catalan Numbers
Gauthier, N.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v42 n1 p131-139 Jan 2011
Four different families of linear recurrences are derived for Catalan numbers. The derivations rest on John Riordan's 1973 generalization of Catalan numbers to a set of polynomials. Elementary differential and integral calculus techniques are used and the results should be of interest to teachers and students of introductory courses in calculus and number theory.
