## Abstract

The coefficients \(c(n,k)\) defined by $$(1-k^{2}x)^{-1/k} = \sum_{n \geq 0} c(n,k)x^n$$ reduce to the central binomial coefficients \(\binom{2n}{n}\) for \(k=2\). Motivated by a question of H. Montgomery and H. Shapiro for the case \(k=3\), we prove that \(c(n,k)\) are integers and study their divisibility properties.## Download
