Determinants of (generalised) Catalan numbers
We show that recent determinant evaluations involving Catalan numbers
and generalisations thereof have most convenient explanations by
combining the Lindström-Gessel-Viennot theorem on non-intersecting
lattice paths with a simple determinant lemma from
[Manuscripta Math. 69 (1990), 173-202].
This approach leads also naturally to extensions and
