%N Catalan triangle (with 0's) read by rows.

%C Inverse lower triangular matrix of A049310(n,m) (coefficients of Chebyshev's S polynomials).

%C Walks with a wall: triangle of number of n-step walks from (0,0) to (n,m) where each step goes from (a,b) to (a+1,b+1) or (a+1,b-1) and the path stays in the nonnegative quadrant.

%C T(n,m) is the number of left factors of Dyck paths of length n ending at height m. Example: T(4,2)=3 because we have UDUU, UUDU, and UUUD, where U=(1,1) and D=(1,-1). (This is basically a different formulation of the previous - walks with a wall - property.) - _Emeric Deutsch_, Jun 16 2011

%C "The Catalan triangle is formed in the same manner as Pascal's triangle, except that no number may appear on the left of the vertical bar." [Conway and Smith]

%C G.f. for row polynomials p(n,x) := Sum_{m=0..n} (a(n,m)*x^m): c(z^2)/(1-x*z*c(z^2)). Row sums (x=1): A001405 (central binomial).

%C In the language of the Shapiro et al. reference such a lower triangular (ordinary) convolution array, considered as a matrix, belongs to the Bell-subgroup of the Riordan-group. The g.f. Ginv(x) of the m=0 column of the inverse of a given Bell-matrix (here A049310) is obtained from its g.f. of the m=0 column (here G(x)=1/(1+x^2)) by Ginv(x)=(f^{(-1)}(x))/x, with f(x) := x*G(x) and f^{(-1)}is the compositional inverse function of f (here one finds, with Ginv(0)=1, c(x^2)). See the Shapiro et al. reference.

%C Row sums of squares equals the Catalan sequence (A000108); for row 6: A000108(6) = 5^2 + 0^2 + 9^2 + 0^2 + 5^2 + 0^2 + 1^2 = 132. - _Paul D. Hanna_, Apr 23 2005

%C Number of involutions of {1,2,...,n} that avoid the patterns 132 and have exactly k fixed points. Example: T(4,2)=3 because we have 2134, 4231 and 3214. Number of involutions of {1,2,...,n} that avoid the patterns 321 and have exactly k fixed points. Example: T(4,2)=3 because we have 1243, 1324 and 2134. Number of involutions of {1,2,...,n} that avoid the patterns 213 and have exactly k fixed points. Example: T(4,2)=3 because we have 1243, 1432 and 4231. - _Emeric Deutsch_, Oct 12 2006

%C Triangle T(n,k), 0<=k<=n, read by rows given by : T(0,0)=1, T(n,k)=0 if k<0 or if k>n, T(n,0)=T(n-1,1), T(n,k)=T(n-1,k-1)+T(n-1,k+1) for k>=1. - _Philippe Deléham_, Mar 30 2007

%C This triangle belongs to the family of triangles defined by: T(0,0)=1, T(n,k)=0 if k<0 or if k>n, T(n,0)=x*T(n-1,0)+T(n-1,1), T(n,k)=T(n-1,k-1)+y*T(n-1,k)+T(n-1,k+1) for k>=1 . Other triangles arise by choosing different values for (x,y): (0,0) -> A053121; (0,1) -> A089942; (0,2) -> A126093; (0,3) -> A126970; (1,0) -> A061554; (1,1) -> A064189; (1,2) -> A039599; (1,3) -> A110877; (1,4) -> A124576; (2,0) -> A126075; (2,1) -> A038622; (2,2) -> A039598; (2,3) -> A124733; (2,4) -> A124575; (3,0) -> A126953; (3,1) -> A126954; (3,2) -> A111418; (3,3) -> A091965; (3,4) -> A124574; (4,3) -> A126791; (4,4) -> A052179; (4,5) -> A126331; (5,5) -> A125906. - _Philippe Deléham_, Sep 25 2007

%C Riordan array (c(x^2),xc(x^2)), where c(x) is the g.f. of Catalan numbers A000108. - _Philippe Deléham_, Nov 25 2007

%C A053121^2 = triangle A145973. Convolved with A001405 = triangle A153585. - _Gary W. Adamson_, Dec 28 2008

%C By columns without the zeros, n-th row = A000108 convolved with itself n times; equivalent to A = (1 + x + 2x^2 + 5x^3 + 14x^4 + ...), then n-th row = coefficients of A^(n+1). - _Gary W. Adamson_, May 13 2009

%C Triangle read by rows,product of A130595 and A064189 considered as infinite lower triangular arrays; A053121 = A130595*A064189 = B^(-1)*A097609*B where B = A007318. - _Philippe Deléham_, Dec 07 2009

%C From _Mark Dols_, Aug 17 2010: (Start)

%C As an upper right triangle, rows represent powers of 5-sqrt(24):

%C 5 - sqrt(24)^1 = 0.101020514...

%C 5 - sqrt(24)^2 = 0.010205144...

%C 5 - sqrt(24)^3 = 0.001030928...

%C (Divided by sqrt(96) these powers give a decimal representation of the columns of A007318, with 1/sqrt(96) being the middle column.) (End)

%C T(n,k) is the number of dispersed Dyck paths of length n (i.e., Motzkin paths of length n with no (1,0) steps at positive heights) having k (1,0)-steps. Example: T(5,3)=4 because, denoting U=(1,1), D=(1,-1), H=1,0), we have HHHUD, HHUDH, HUDHH, and UDHHH. - _Emeric Deutsch_, Jun 01 2011

%C Let S(N,x) denote the N-th Chebyshev S-polynomial in x (see A049310, cf. [W. Lang]). Then x^n = sum_{k=0..n} T(n,k)*S(k,x). - _L. Edson Jeffery_, Sep 06 2012

%C This triangle a(n,m) appears also in the (unreduced) formula for the powers rho(N)^n for the algebraic number over the rationals rho(N) = 2*cos(Pi/N) = R(N, 2), the smallest diagonal/side ratio R in the regular N-gon:

%C rho(N)^n = sum(a(n,m)*R(N,m+1),m=0..n), n>=0, identical in N >= 1. R(N,j) = S(j-1, x=rho(N)) (Chebyshev S (A049310)). See a comment on this under A039599 (even powers) and A039598 (odd powers). Proof: see the Sep 06 2012 comment by L. Edson Jeffery, which follows from T(n,k) (called here a(n,k)) being the inverse of the Riordan triangle A049310. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Sep 21 2013

%C The so-called A-sequence for this Riordan triangle of the Bell type (c(x^2), x*c(x^2)) (see comments above) is A(x) = 1 + x^2. This proves the recurrence given in the formula section by Henry Bottomley for a(n, m) = a(n-1, m-1) + a(n-1, m+1) for n>=1 and m>=1, with inputs. The Z-sequence for this Riordan triangle is Z(x) = x which proves the recurrence a(n,0) = a(n-1,1), n>=1, a(0,0) = 1. For A- and Z-sequences for Riordan triangles see the W. Lang link under A006232. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Sep 22 2013

%C Rows of the triangle describe decompositions of tensor powers of the standard (2-dimensional) representation of the Lie algebra sl(2) into irreducibles. Thus a(n,m) is the multiplicity of the m-th ((m+1)-dimensional) irreducible representation in the n-th tensor power of the standard one. - _Mamuka Jibladze_, May 26 2015

%C The Riordan row polynomials p(n, x) belong to the Boas-Buck class (see a comment and references in A046521), hence they satisfy the Boas-Buck identity: (E_x - n*1)*p(n, x) = (E_x + 1)*Sum_{j=0..n-1} (1/2)*(1 - (-1)^j)*binomial(j+1, (j+1)/2)*p(n-1-j, x), for n >= 0, where E_x = x*d/dx (Euler operator). For the triangle a(n, m) this entails a recurrence for the sequence of column m, given in the formula section. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Aug 11 2017

%C From _Roger Ford_, Jan 22 2018: (Start)

%C For row n, the nonzero values represent the odd components (loops) formed by n+1 nonintersecting arches above and below the x-axis with the following constraints: The top has floor((n+3)/2) starting arches at position 1 and the next consecutive odd positions. All other starting top arches are in even positions. The bottom arches are a rainbow of arches. If the component=1 then the arch configuration is a semimeander solution.

%C Examples: For row 3 {0, 2, 0, 1} there are 3 arch configurations: 2 arch configurations have a component=1; 1 has a component=3. c=components, U=top arch starting in odd position, u=top arch starting in an even position, d=ending top arch:
