%N Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of noncrossing trees with n edges in which the leftmost leaf is at level k.

%C T(n,k) is also the number of diagonally convex directed polyominoes with n diagonals and having k diagonals of length 1. Proof: the two triangles have the same g.f.

%C Row n has n terms. Column 1 and row sums yield the ternary numbers (A001764).

%F T(n,k) = Sum_{i=0..k-1}((k+i)/(2*n-k+i)) binomial(k-1, i) binomial(3n-2k+i-1, n-k).

%F G.f. = (1-tzg^2)/(1-tzg-tzg^2), where g=1+zg^3 is the g.f. of the ternary numbers (A001764). (An explicit expression for g is given in the Maple program.)

%e T(2,1)=1 and T(2,2)=2 because the noncrossing trees with 2 edges are /\, /_ and _\.

%e Or, T(2,2)=2 because the horizontal domino and the vertical domino have 2 diagonals of length 1 each.
