    I think this is untrue, the LHS diverges while RHS converges

    How can we say LHS diverges?

    the LHS is of order n, definitely it diverges

    \[ \frac{2 (n-1)^2}{8n} = \frac{n^2 - 2n + 1}{4n} = \left( \frac{n}{4} - \frac{1}{2} \right) + \frac{1}{4n}\] Both part of above diverges.

    Here's a mathematica code for it Table[(2 n)!/((n!)^2 2^(2 n) (2 n - 1)), {n, 1, 10}] and to verify it a = 1/2 For[i = 2, i <= 10, i++, a = (2 i - 3)/(2 i) a; Print[a];] This converges exactly to 1 Sum[Binomial[2 n, n]/(2^(2 n) (2 n - 1)), {n, 1, Infinity}]

    you can show that \[ \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{1}{2^{2n}(2n-1)} \times \binom{2n}{n} = 1 \] using this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalan_number
