COMMENTS

T(n,k) = number of Delannoy paths (A001850) of size n with k weak peaks. A (central) Delannoy path is a lattice path of upsteps U=(1,1), downsteps D=(1,1) and horizontal steps H=(2,0) that starts at the origin and ends on the xaxis. Its size is #Us + #Hs. Thus a Delannoy path of size n ends at the point (2n,0). A weak peak is a UD or an H.

FORMULA

T(n,k) = 2^k binomial(n,k)^2. GF: Sum_{n>=k>=0}T(n,k) x^n y^k = 1/Sqrt[(1x)^2  4*x*y*(1+xx*y)]

T(2,1)=8 counts the paths UUDD, UDDU, UHD, DUUD, DUDU, DUH, DHU, HDU
because each contains a single UD or a single H but not both.
