%N Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of secondary structures of size n having k stacks of length 2 (n>=0, k>=0).

%C For "secondary structure" and "stack" see the Hofacker et al. reference, p. 209.

%C Sum of entries in row n is A004148 (the secondary structure numbers).

%F Sum(k*T(n,k), k>=0) = A202839(n-2).

%F T(n,0) = A202842(n).

%F G.f. G(t,z) satisfies G = 1 + zG + [f/(1 + f)]G(G-1), where f = (t-1)z^4 + z^2/(1-z^2).

%F The multivariate g.f. H(z, t[1], t[2], ...) of secondary structures with respect to size (marked by z) and number of stacks of length j (marked by t[j]) satisfies H = 1 + zH + [f/(1 + f)]H(H-1), where f = t[1]z^2 + t[2]z^4 + t[3]z^6 + ... .

%e Row 5 is 7,1: representing unpaired vertices by v and arcs by AA, BB, etc., the 8 (= A004148(5)) secondary structures of size 5 are vvvvv, AvAvv, vvAvA, AvvAv, vAvvA, AvvvA, vAvAv, ABvBA; only the last one has a stack of length 2.
