Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of unordered pairs of nodes at distance k in the Moebius ladder M(n) (entries in row n are the coefficients of the corresponding Wiener polynomial). The Moebius ladder M(n) (n>=3) is the graph obtained from the cycle graph C(2n) by adding new edges joining each pair of opposite nodes.

COMMENTS

Row n contains floor((n+1)/2) entries.
Sum of entries in row n is n(2n1)=A000384(n).
T(n,1)=3n = number of edges in the corresponding graph.
Sum(k*T(n,k), k>=1) = A180857(n).

FORMULA

The generating polynomial for row 2n+1 is n[3t+2t^{(n+1)/2}+4t^2*sum(t^j, j=0..(m5)/2)] and for row 2n it is n[3t+4t^2*sum(t^j, j=0..(n4)/2)] (these are also the Wiener polynomials of the corresponding Moebius ladders).
