 A055215 A path-counting array, read by rows: T(i,j)=number of paths from (0,0) to (i-j,j) using steps (1 unit right and 1 unit up) or (1 unit right and 2 units up). 1

%N A path-counting array, read by rows: T(i,j)=number of paths from (0,0) to (i-j,j) using steps (1 unit right and 1 unit up) or (1 unit right and 2 units up).

%C If m >= 1 and n >= 2, then T(m+n-1,m) is the number of strings (s(1),s(2),...,s(n)) of nonnegative integers satisfying s(n)=m and 1<=s(k)-s(k-1)<=2 for k=2,3,...,n.

%F T(i, 0)=T(i, i)=1 for i >= 0; T(i, 1)=1 for i >= 1; T(i, j)=T(i-2, j-1)+T(i-3, j-2) for 2<=j<=i-1, i >= 3.

%e 7=T(8,5) counts these strings: 0135, 0235, 0245, 1235, 1245, 1345, 2345.
