A181366 Least entry in a 2-composition of n, summed over all 2-compositions of n. A 2-composition of n is a nonnegative matrix with two rows, such that each column has at least one nonzero entry and whose entries sum up to n. 2

FORMULA

G.f. for 2-compositions with all entries >= k is h(k,z)=(1-z)^2/(1-2z+z^2-z^{2k}) if k>0 and h(0,z)=(1-z)^2/(1-4z+2z^2) if k=0.

G.f. for 2-compositions with least entry k is f(k,z)=h(k,z)-h(k+1,z).

G.f.: G(z) = Sum(k*f(k,z), k=1..infinity).

a(n) ~ 2^(n-2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Sep 03 2014

EXAMPLE

a(2)=1 because the 2-compositions of 2, written as (top row / bottom row), are (1/1), (0/2), (2/0), (1,0/0,1), (0,1/1,0), (1,1/0,0), (0,0/1,1) and the least entries are 1 and eight 0's.

MAPLE

h := proc (k) if k = 0 then (1-z)^2/(1-4*z+2*z^2) else (1-z)^2/(1-2*z+z^2-z^(2*k)) end if end proc: f := proc (k) options operator, arrow; h(k)-h(k+1) end proc: G := sum(k*f(k), k = 1 .. 50): Gser := series(G, z = 0, 45): seq(coeff(Gser, z, n), n = 1 .. 35);
