 A286443 Irregular triangle read by rows: T(n, k) = number of non-equivalent ways to tile an n X n X n triangular area with k 2 X 2 X 2 triangular tiles and an appropriate number (= n^2-4*k) of 1 X 1 X 1 tiles. 5

%N Irregular triangle read by rows: T(n, k) = number of non-equivalent ways to tile an n X n X n triangular area with k 2 X 2 X 2 triangular tiles and an appropriate number (= n^2-4*k) of 1 X 1 X 1 tiles.

%C The triangle T(n, k) is irregularly shaped: For n >= 4: 0 <= k <= n^2/4 if n is even, 0 <= k <= (n^2 -9)/4 if n is odd. First row corresponds to n = 1.

%C Rotations and reflections of tilings are not counted. If they are to be counted, see A286436. Tiles of the same size are indistinguishable.

%C For an analogous problem concerning square tiles, see A236679.

%e T(4, 3) = 2 because there are 2 non-equivalent ways to tile an area of size 4X4X4 with 3 tiles of size 2X2X2 and fill up the rest with tiles of size 1X1X1.
