 A128728 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of skew Dyck paths of semilength n and having k UDL's (n>=0; 0<=k<=floor((n+1)/2)). A skew Dyck path is a path in the first quadrant which begins at the origin, ends on the x-axis, consists of steps U=(1,1)(up), D=(1,-1)(down) and L=(-1,-1)(left) so that up and left steps do not overlap. The length of a path is defined to be the number of steps in it. 2

 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS Row n has 1+floor((n+1)/3) terms. Row sums yield A002212. T(n,0)=A128729(n). Sum(k*T(n,k),k>=0)=A128730(n). Apparently, T(3k-1,k)=binom(3k-1,k)/(3k-1)=A006013(k-1). LINKS E. Deutsch, E. Munarini, S. Rinaldi, Skew Dyck paths, J. Stat. Plann. Infer. 140 (8) (2010) 2191-2203 FORMULA G.f.=G=G(t,z) satisfies z^2*G^3-z(2-z)G^2+(1-z^2)G-1+z+z^2-tz^2=0. EXAMPLE T(3,1)=4 because we have UDUUDL, UUUDLD, UUDUDL and UUUDLL. Triangle starts: 1; 1; 2,1; 6,4; 20,16; 71,64,2; 262,261,20; MAPLE eq:=z^2*G^3-z*(2-z)*G^2+(1-z^2)*G-1+z+z^2-t*z^2=0: G:=RootOf(eq, G): Gser:=simplify(series(G, z=0, 17)): for n from 0 to 14 do P[n]:=sort(coeff(Gser, z, n)) od: for n from 0 to 14 do seq(coeff(P[n], t, j), j=0..floor((n+1)/3)) od; # yields sequence in triangular form CROSSREFS Cf.
