A038717 Triangular array read by rows: T(n,m) = number of ways your team can score m points in n rounds of a soccer competition (loss=0 point, draw=1 point, win=3 points), for n >= 0, 0 <= m <= 3n. 2

FORMULA

T(n, m) = T(n-1, m) + T(n-1, m-1) + T(n-1, m-3).

G.f. Sum T(n, m)*z^n*w^m = 1/(1-z(1+w+w^3)). Hence m-th column is a polynomial in n of degree m given by C(n, m) + C(m-2, 1)*C(n, m-2) + C(m-4, 2)*C(n, m-4) + C(m-6, 3)*C(n, m-6) + ... E.g. column 5 is C(n, 5)+3C(n, 3). - N. J. A. Sloane, May 24 2005

MATHEMATICA

T[_, 0] = 1;

T[n_, m_] /; 0 <= m <= 3n = T[n, m] = T[n-1, m]+T[n-1, m-1]+T[n-1, m-3];

T[_, _] = 0;
