A166286 Number of Dyck paths with no UUU's and no DDD's, of semilength n having no peak plateaux (U=(1,1), D=(1,-1)). A peak plateau is a run of consecutive peaks that is preceded by an upstep U and followed by a down step D; a peak consists of an upstep followed by a downstep. 1

COMMENTS

a(n) = A166285(n,0).

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..31.

FORMULA

G.f. = G(z) satisfies G = 1 + zG + z^2*G + z^3*G[G - 1/(1-z)].

EXAMPLE

a(3)=3 because we have UDUDUD, UDUUDD, and UUDDUD (UUDUDD is a peak plateau).

MAPLE

F := RootOf(G = 1+z*G+z^2*G+z^3*G*(G-1/(1-z)), G): Fser := series(F, z = 0, 35): seq(coeff(Fser, z, n), n = 0 .. 32);
