FORMULA

T(n, k)=binomial(n, k+1)*binomial(n+2k-1, k)/(n+k) (0<=k<=n-1).

EXAMPLE

Triangle begins:

  1;

  1,  1;

  1,  3,   3;

  1,  6,  14,  12;

  1, 10,  40,  75,   55;

  1, 15,  90, 275,  429,  273;

  1, 21, 175, 770, 1911, 2548, 1428;

  ...

T(3,1)=3 because the noncrossing forests on 3 vertices A,B,C and having one edge are (A, BC), (B, CA) and (C, AB).

MAPLE

T:=proc(n, k) if k<=n-1 then binomial(n, k+1)*binomial(n+2*k-1, k)/(n+k) else 0 fi end: seq(seq(T(n, k), k=0..n-1), n=1..11);

MATHEMATICA

T[n_, k_] := Binomial[n, k+1] Binomial[n+2k-1, k]/(n+k);

Table[T[n, k], {n, 1, 11}, {k, 0, n-1}] // Flatten (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Jul 29 2018 *)

PROG

(PARI)

T(n, k)=binomial(n, k+1)*binomial(n+2*k-1, k)/(n+k);

for(n=1, 10, for(k=0, n-1, print1(T(n, k), ", ")); print); \\ Andrew Howroyd, Nov 17 2017
