Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

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);
