COMMENTS

There are 2 versions of Euler's triangle:

* A008292 Classic version of Euler's triangle used by Comtet (1974).

* A173018 Version of Euler's triangle used by Graham, Knuth and Patashnik in Concrete Math. (1990).

Euler's triangle rows and columns indexing conventions:

* A008292 The rows and columns of the Eulerian triangle are both indexed starting from 1. (Classic version: used in the classic books by Riordan and Comtet.)

* A173018 The rows and columns of the Eulerian triangle are both indexed starting from 0. (Graham et al.)

Number of Dyck paths of semilength n having exactly one long ascent (i.e., ascent of length at least two). Example: a(4)=11 because among the 14 Dyck paths of semilength 4, the paths that do not have exactly one long ascent are UDUDUDUD (no long ascent), UUDDUUDD and UUDUUDDD (two long ascents). Here U=(1,1) and D=(1,-1). Also number of ordered trees with n edges having exactly one branch node (i.e. vertex of outdegree at least two). - Emeric Deutsch, Feb 22 2004

Number of permutations of {1,2,...,n} with exactly one descent (i.e. permutations (p(1),p(2),...,p(n)) such that #{i: p(i)>p(i+1)}=1). E.g., a(3)=4 because the permutations of {1,2,3} with one descent are 132, 213, 231 and 312.

A107907(a(n+2)) = A000079(n+2). - Reinhard Zumkeller, May 28 2005

a(n+1) is the convolution of nonnegative integers (A001477) and powers of two (A000079). - Graeme McRae, Jun 07 2006

Partial sum of main diagonal of array defined in A125127 = Array L(k,n) read by antidiagonals: k-step Lucas numbers. - Jonathan Vos Post, Nov 22 2006

Number of partitions of an n-set having exactly one block of size > 1. Example: a(4)=11 because, if the partitioned set is {1,2,3,4}, then we have 1234, 123|4, 124|3, 134|2, 1|234, 12|3|4, 13|2|4, 14|2|3, 1|23|4, 1|24|3 and 1|2|34. - Emeric Deutsch, Oct 28 2006

n divides a(n+1) for n = A014741(n) = {1, 2, 6, 18, 42, 54, 126, 162, 294, 342, 378, 486, 882, 1026, ...}. - Alexander Adamchuk, Nov 03 2006

(Number of permutations avoiding patterns 321, 2413, 3412, 21534) minus one. - Jean-Luc Baril, Nov 01 2007, Mar 21 2008

The chromatic invariant of the prism graph P_n for n >= 3. - Jonathan Vos Post, Aug 29 2008

Decimal integer corresponding to the result of XORing the binary representation of 2^n - 1 and the binary representation of n with leading zeros. This sequence and a few others are syntactically similar. For n > 0, let D(n) denote the decimal integer corresponding to the binary number having n consecutive 1's. Then D(n).OP.n represents the n-th term of a sequence when .OP. stands for a binary operator such as '+', '-', '*', 'quotentof', 'mod', 'choose'. We then get the various sequences A136556, A082495, A082482, A066524, A000295, A052944. Another syntactically similar sequence results when we take the n-th term as f(D(n)).OP.f(n). For example if f='factorial' and .OP.='/', we get (A136556)(A000295) ; if f='squaring' and .OP.='-', we get (A000295)(A052944). - K.V.Iyer, Mar 30 2009

Chromatic invariant of the prism graph Y_n.

Number of labelings of a full binary tree of height n-1, such that each path from root to any leaf contains each label from {1,2,..,n-1} exactly once. - Michael Vielhaber (vielhaber(AT)gmail.com), Nov 18 2009

Also number of nontrivial equivalence classes generated by the weak associative law X((YZ)T)=(X(YZ))T on words with n open and n closed parentheses. Also the number of join (resp. meet)-irreducible elements in the pruning-grafting lattice of binary trees with n leaves. - Jean Pallo, Jan 08 2010

Nonzero terms of this sequence can be found from the row sums of the third sub-triangle extracted from Pascal's triangle as indicated below by braces:

1;

1,1;

{1},2,1;

{1,3},3,1;

{1,4,6},4,1;

{1,5,10,10},5,1;

{1,6,15,20,15},6,1;

... - L. Edson Jeffery, Dec 28 2011

For integers a, b, denote by a<+>b the least c >= a, such that the Hamming distance D(a,c) = b (note that, generally speaking, a<+>b differs from b<+>a). Then for n >= 3, a(n) = n<+>n. This has a simple explanation: for n >= 3 in binary we have a(n) = (2^n-1)-n = "anti n". - Vladimir Shevelev, Feb 14 2012

a(n) is the number of binary sequences of length n having at least one pair 01. - Branko Curgus, May 23 2012

Nonzero terms are those integers k for which there exists a perfect (Hamming) error-correcting code. - L. Edson Jeffery, Nov 28 2012

a(n) is the number of length n binary words constructed in the following manner:  Select two positions in which to place the first two 0's of the word.  Fill in all (possibly none)  of the positions before the second 0 with 1's and then complete the word with an arbitrary string of 0's or 1's. So a(n) = Sum_{k=2..n} (k-1)*2^(n-k). - Geoffrey Critzer, Dec 12 2013

Without first 0: a(n)/2^n equals Sum_{k=0..n} k/2^k. For example: a(5)=57, 57/32 = 0/1 + 1/2 + 2/4 + 3/8 + 4/16 + 5/32. - Bob Selcoe, Feb 25 2014

The first barycentric coordinate of the centroid of the first n rows of Pascal's triangle, assuming the numbers are weights, is A000295(n+1)/A000337(n). See attached figure. - César Eliud Lozada, Nov 14 2014

Starting (0, 1, 4, 11, ...), this is the binomial transform of (0, 1, 2, 2, 2, ...). - Gary W. Adamson, Jul 27 2015
