COMMENTS

The definition of an orbital system is given in A232500 (see also the illustration there). The number of orbitals over n sectors is counted by the swinging factorial A056040.
A 'restart' of an orbital is a raise which starts from the central circle.
A118920 is a subtriangle.

FORMULA

For even n>0: T(n,k) = 4*(k+1)*binomial(n,n/2k1)/n for k=0..n/21 (from A118920).


EXAMPLE

Triangle read by rows, n>=0. The length of row n is floor((n+1)/2) for n>=1.
[n] [k=0,1,2,...] [row sum]
[ 0] [1] 1
[ 1] [1] 1
[ 2] [2] 2
[ 3] [5, 1] 6
[ 4] [4, 2] 6
[ 5] [18, 11, 1] 30
[ 6] [10, 8, 2] 20
[ 7] [65, 57, 17, 1] 140
[ 8] [28, 28, 12, 2] 70
[ 9] [238, 252, 116, 23, 1] 630
[10] [84, 96, 54, 16, 2] 252
[11] [882, 1050, 615, 195, 29, 1] 2772
T(6, 2) = 2 because there are two orbitals over 6 segments which have 2 ascents:
[1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1] and [1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1].
