Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

FORMULA

G.f. of column k: 1/(x^k*(1-x-2*x^(k+1))).

A(n,k) = 3^n if k=0, else A(n,k) = 2*n+1 if n<=k+1, else A(n,k) = A(n-1,k) + 2*A(n-k-1,k).

EXAMPLE

A(3,1) = 11, because 11 ternary words of length 3 have at least 1 0-digit between any other digits: 000, 001, 002, 010, 020, 100, 101, 102, 200, 201, 202.

Square array A(n,k) begins:

3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, ...

9, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, 5, ...

27, 11, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, ...

81, 21, 13, 9, 9, 9, 9, 9, ...

243, 43, 23, 15, 11, 11, 11, 11, ...

729, 85, 37, 25, 17, 13, 13, 13, ...

2187, 171, 63, 39, 27, 19, 15, 15, ...

MAPLE

A := proc (n::nonnegint, k::nonnegint) option remember; if k=0 then 3^n elif n<=k+1 then 2*n+1 else A(n-1, k) +2*A(n-k-1, k) fi end: seq(seq(A(n, d-n), n=0..d), d=0..14);

MATHEMATICA

a[n_, 0] := 3^n; a[n_, k_] /; n <= k+1 := 2*n+1; a[n_, k_] := a[n, k] = a[n-1, k] + 2*a[n-k-1, k]; Table[a[n-k, k], {n, 0, 14}, {k, n, 0, -1}] // Flatten (* Jean-François Alcover, Dec 11 2013 *)
