Determinants of (generalised) Catalan Numbers

  title={Determinants of (generalised) Catalan Numbers},
  author={Christian Krattenthaler}
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 generalisations.
