A091156 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of Dyck paths of semilength n, having k long ascents (i.e., ascents of length at least 2). Rows are of length 1,1,2,2,3,3,... . 5

%N Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of Dyck paths of semilength n, having k long ascents (i.e., ascents of length at least 2). Rows are of length 1,1,2,2,3,3,... .

%C Also number of ordered trees with n edges, having k branch nodes (i.e., vertices of outdegree at least 2).

%C Also number of Łukasiewicz paths of length n having k fall steps (1,-1) that start at an odd level. A Łukasiewicz path of length n is a path in the first quadrant from (0,0) to (n,0) using rise steps (1,k) for any positive integer k, level steps (1,0) and fall steps (1,-1) (see R. P. Stanley, Enumerative Combinatorics, Vol. 2, Cambridge Univ. Press, Cambridge, 1999, p. 223, Exercise 6.19w; the integers are the slopes of the steps). Example: T(4,2)=2 because we have U(D)U(D) and U(3)(D)D(D), where U=(1,1), D=(1,-1), U(3)=(1,3) and the fall steps that start at an odd level are shown between parentheses. Row n has 1+floor(n/2) terms. Row sums are the Catalan numbers (A000108). T(2n,n)=A000108(n). T(2n+1,n)=A001791(n+1)=binomial(2n+2,n). - _Emeric Deutsch_, Jan 06 2005

%C Also number of Dyck paths of semilength n with k UUD's - I. Tasoulas (jtas(AT)unipi.gr), Feb 19 2006

%C T(n,k) = number of Dyck n-paths whose decomposition into 2-step subpaths contains k UUs. For example, T(4,2)=2 counts UU|UU|DD|DD, UU|DD|UU|DD (vertical bars indicate path decomposition). - _David Callan_, Jun 07 2006

%C T(n,k) = number of binary trees on n-1 edges containing k right edges whose child vertex has no right child. Under Knuth's "natural" correspondence, such a vertex in binary (n-1)-tree ~ a vertex of outdegree >=2 in ordered n-tree. - _David Callan_, Sep 25 2006

%C T(n,k) = number of binary trees on n-1 edges containing k left edges whose child vertex has no left child. Under "natural" correspondence, such a vertex in binary (n-1)-tree ~ a leaf edge with no left neighbor edge and not incident to the root in ordered n-tree ~ a UUD in Dyck n-path. - _David Callan_, Sep 25 2006

%C T(n,k) = number of permutations of length n avoiding 321 (classically) with k descents. - _Andrew Baxter_, May 17 2011.
