%N Rows of Losanitsch's triangle T(n, k), n >= 0, 0 <= k <= n.

%C Sometimes erroneously called "Lossnitsch's triangle". But the author's name is Losanitsch (I have seen the original paper in Chem. Ber.). This is a German version of the Serbian name Lozanic. - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Jun 29 2008

%C For n >= 3, a(n-3,k) is the number of series-reduced (or homeomorphically irreducible) trees which become a path P(k+1) on k+1 nodes, k >= 0, when all leaves are omitted (see illustration). Proof by Polya's enumeration theorem. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Jun 08 2001

%C The number of ways to put beads of two colors in a line, but take symmetry into consideration, so that 011 and 110 are considered the same. - Yong Kong (ykong(AT)nus.edu.sg), Jan 04 2005

%C Alternating row sums are 1,0,1,0,2,0,4,0,8,0,16,0, ... - _Gerald McGarvey_, Oct 20 2008

%C The triangle sums, see A180662 for their definitions, link Losanitsch’s triangle A034851 with several sequences, see the crossrefs. We observe that the Ze3 and Ze4 sums link Losanitsch’s triangle with A005683, i.e., _R. K. Guy_’s Twopins game. - _Johannes W. Meijer_, Jul 14 2011

%C T(n-(l-1)k, k) is the number of ways to cover an n-length line by exactly k l-length segments excluding symmetric covers. For l=2 it is corresponds to A102541, for l=3 to A228570 and for l=4 to A228572. - _Philipp O. Tsvetkov_, Nov 08 2013

%C Also the number of equivalence classes of ways of placing k 1 X 1 tiles in an n X 1 rectangle under all symmetry operations of the rectangle. - _Christopher Hunt Gribble_, Feb 16 2014

%F T(n, k) = (1/2) * (A007318(n, k) + A051159(n, k)).

%F G.f. for k-th column (if formatted as lower triangular matrix a(n, k)): x^k*Pe(floor((k+1)/2), x^2)/(((1-x)^(k+1))*(1+x)^(floor((k+1)/2))), where Pe(n, x^2) := sum(A034839(n, m)*x^(2*m), m=0..floor(n/2)) (row polynomials of array Pascal even numbered columns). - _Wolfdieter Lang_, May 08 2001

%F a(n, k) = a(n-1, k-1) + a(n-1, k) - C(n/2-1, (k-1)/2), where the last term is present only if n even, k odd (see Sloane link).

%F T(n, k) = T(n-2, k-2) + T(n-2, k) + C(n-2, k-1), n>1.

%F Let P(n, x, y) = Sum_{m=0..n} a(n, m)*x^m*y^(n-m), then for x>0, y>0 we have P(n, x, y) = (x+y)*P(n-1, x, y) for n odd and P(n, x, y) = (x+y)*P(n-1, x, y) - x*y*(x^2+y^2)^((n-2)/2) for n even. - _Gerald McGarvey_, Feb 15 2005

%F T(n, k) = T(n-1, k-1) + T(n-1, k) - A204293(n-2, k-1), 0 < k <= n and n > 1. - _Reinhard Zumkeller_, Jan 14 2012

%F It appears that:

%F T(n,k) = C(n,k)/2, n even, k odd;

%F T(n,k) = (C(n,k) + C(n/2,k/2))/2, n even, k even;

%F T(n,k) = (C(n,k) + C((n-1)/2,(k-1)/2)/2, n odd, k odd;

%F T(n,k) = (C(n,k) + C((n-1)/2,k/2))/2, n odd, k even.
