COMMENTS

T(n,k) = number of ordered trees on n edges whose kth edge (in preorder or "walk around from root" order) is the first one that terminates at a vertex of outdegree 1 (k=0 if there is no such edge). The first column and the main diagonal (after initial entry) are Motzkin numbers (A001006). Each interior entry is the sum of its North and East neighbors.


LINKS

FORMULA

G.f. for column k=0 is (1  z  (12*z3*z^2)^(1/2))/(2*z^2) = Sum_{n>=1}T(n, 0)z^n. G.f. for columns k>=1 is (t*(1  (1  4*z)^(1/2)  2*z))/ (1  t + t*(1  4*z)^(1/2) + t*z + (1  2*t*z  3*t^2*z^2)^(1/2)) = Sum_{n>=2, 1<=k<=n1}T(n, k)z^n*t^k.
