Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A274777 Irregular triangle read by rows: T(n,k) = number of arrangements of n circles in the affine plane forming k regions, excluding the regions that do not belong to the circles. 5

COMMENTS

In other words: not counting the regions between circles.

Consider the arrangements of n circles described in A250001.

Note that the sum of the 4th row must be equal to A250001(4) = 173.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..14.

FORMULA

T(n,k) = A274819(n,k)/k.

EXAMPLE

Triangle begins:

1;

0, 2, 1;

0, 0, 4, 4, 2, 1, 3;

0, 0, 0, ...

...

For n = 3 and k = 5 there are 2 arrangements of 3 circles in the affine plane forming 5 regions, excluding the regions that do not belong to the circles, so T(3,5) = 2.

For n = 3 and k = 6 there is only one arrangement of 3 circles in the affine plane forming 6 regions, excluding the regions that do not belong to the circles, so T(3,6) = 1.

Of course, there is a right triangle of all zeros starting from the second row.

CROSSREFS

Sum of n-th row = A250001(n).

First differs from A274776 at a(10).

Cf. A250001, A249752, A252158, A261070, A274819, A274823.
