A186358 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of permutations of {1,2,...,n} having k up-down cycles (0<=k<=n). A cycle (b(1), b(2), ...) is said to be up-down if, when written with its smallest element in the first position, it satisfies b(1)<b(2)>b(3)<... . 4

COMMENTS

Sum of entries in row n is n!.

T(n,0) = A186359(n).

Sum_{k=0..n} k * T(n,k) = A186360(n).

FORMULA

E.g.f.: (1-sin z)^(1-t)/(1-z).

The trivariate e.g.f. H(t,s,z) of the permutations of {1,2,...,n} with respect to size (marked by z), number of up-down cycles (marked by t), and number of cycles that are not up-down (marked by s) is given by H(t,s,z) = (1-sin z)^(s-t)/(1-z)^s.

EXAMPLE

T(3,0)=1 because we have (123).

T(4,2)=7 because we have (1)(243), (142)(3), (132)(4), (13)(24), (12)(34), (143)(2), and (14)(23).

MAPLE

G := (1-sin(z))^(1-t)/(1-z): Gser := simplify(series(G, z = 0, 16)): for n from 0 to 10 do P[n] := sort(expand(factorial(n)*coeff(Gser, z, n))) end do: for n from 0 to 10 do seq(coeff(P[n], t, j), j = 0 .. n) end do; # yields sequence in triangular form
