 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS Also the number of k-subsets of {1..2n-1} with mean n. - Gus Wiseman, Apr 16 2023 REFERENCES R. E. Odeh and E. J. Cockayne, Balancing weights on the integer line, J. Combin. Theory, 7 (1969), 130-135. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..60. FORMULA Equivalent to number of partitions of n(2k-n+1)/2 into up to n parts each no more than 2k-n+1 so a(n, k)=A067059(n, n(2k-n+1)/2); row sums are A047653(n)-1 = A212352(n). - Henry Bottomley, Aug 11 2001 EXAMPLE From Gus Wiseman, Apr 18 2023: (Start) Triangle begins: 1 1 2 1 3 5 1 4 8 12 1 5 13 24 32 1 6 18 43 73 94 1 7 25 69 141 227 289 1 8 32 104 252 480 734 910 1 9 41 150 414 920 1656 2430 2934 Row n = 4 counts the following balanced subsets: {0} {-1,1} {-1,0,1} {-3,0,1,2} {-2,2} {-2,0,2} {-4,0,1,3} {-3,3} {-3,0,3} {-2,-1,0,3} {-4,4} {-3,1,2} {-2,-1,1,2} {-4,0,4} {-3,-1,0,4} {-4,1,3} {-3,-1,1,3} {-2,-1,3} {-3,-2,1,4} {-3,-1,4} {-3,-2,2,3} {-4,-1,1,4} {-4,-1,2,3} {-4,-2,2,4} {-4,-3,3,4} (End) MATHEMATICA a[n_, k_] := Length[ IntegerPartitions[ n*(2k - n + 1)/2, n, Range[2k - n + 1]]]; Flatten[ Table[ a[n, k], {k, 1, 11}, {n, 1, k}]] (* Jean-François Alcover, Jan 02 2012 *) Table[Length[Select[Subsets[Range[-n, n]], Length[#]==k&&Total[#]==0&]], {n, 8}, {k, n}] (* Gus Wiseman, Apr 16 2023 *) CROSSREFS Last column is a(n,n) = A002838(n).
