What's $$C_i$$? $$i$$-th Catalan number? · 3 years, 8 months ago

$$C_{i}^{2i}$$ denotes combinations. · 3 years, 8 months ago

I thought it was i-th Catalan number to the power of 2i. :) · 3 years, 8 months ago

same as $${2i \choose i}$$ · 3 years, 8 months ago

expand it as (iC0)^2 + (iC1)^2 +........ (iCi)^2 and then summate each term separately.... · 3 years, 8 months ago

Sorry, I didn't got your point! Here n=i and you can't take n as constant in summation. · 3 years, 8 months ago

i know, but it is good to know that theorum too :) · 3 years, 8 months ago

The summation still looks ugly after using it. Anyway it is a good theorem to know about. · 3 years, 8 months ago
