COMMENTS

T(n,k) is the number of 2-Motzkin paths (i.e. Motzkin paths with blue and red level steps) with no level steps at positive height and having k blue level steps. Example: T(4,2)=9 because, denoting U=(1,1), D=(1,-1), B=blue (1,0), R=red (1,0), we have BBRR, BRBR, BRRB, RBBR, RBRB, RRBB, BBUD, BUDB, and UDBB. - Emeric Deutsch, Jun 07 2011

In the language of the Shapiro et al. reference (given in A053121) such a lower triangular (ordinary) convolution array, considered as a matrix, belongs to the Bell-subgroup of the Riordan-group.

The G.f. for the row polynomials p(n,x) (increasing powers of x) is 1/(1-(1+x)*z-z^2*c(z^2)), with c(x) the g.f. for Catalan numbers A000108.

Column sequences: A001405, A045621.

Riordan array (f(x),x*f(x)), f(x) the g.f. of A001405. - Philippe Deléham, Dec 08 2009

From Paul Barry, Oct 21 2010: (Start)

Riordan array ((sqrt(1+2x)-sqrt(1-2x))/(2x*sqrt(1-2x)),(sqrt(1+2x)-sqrt(1-2x))/(2sqrt(1-2x))),

inverse of Riordan array ((1+x)/(1+2x+2x^2),x(1+x)/(1+2x+2x^2)) (A181472). (End)

FORMULA

G.f. for column m: cbi(x)*(x*cbi(x))^m, with cbi(x) := (1+x*c(x^2))/sqrt(1-4*x^2) = 1/(1-x-x^2*c(x^2)), where c(x) is the g.f. for Catalan numbers A000108.

T(n,k) = Sum_{j,j>=0} A053121(n,j)*C(j,k). - Philippe Deléham, Mar 30 2007

T(n,k) = T(n-1,k-1) + T(n-1,l) + Sum_{i, i>=0} T(n-1,k+1+i)*(-1)^i. - Philippe Deléham, Feb 23 2012
