A109158 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is number of paths from (0,0) to (3n,0) that stay in the first quadrant (but may touch the horizontal axis), consisting of steps u=(2,1),U=(1,2), or d=(1,-1) and having height of last peak equal to k. 0

COMMENTS
Row n has 2n terms. Row sums yield A027307. T(n,1)=A027307(n-1). T(n,2)=2*A027307(n-1) for n>=2.

FORMULA
G.f.=tz(1+t)/[1-tz-t^2z-(1+t)zA-zA^2], where A=1+zA^2+zA^3=(2/3)*sqrt((z+3)/z)*sin((1/3)*arcsin(sqrt(z)*(z+18)/(z+3)^(3/2)))-1/3 (the g.f. of A027307).
EXAMPLE
T(2,3)=3 because we have uUddd, UdUddd and Uuddd.

MAPLE
A:=(2/3)*sqrt((z+3)/z)*sin((1/3)*arcsin(sqrt(z)*(z+18)/(z+3)^(3/2)))-1/3: G:=t*z*(1+t)/(1-t*z-t^2*z-(1+t)*z*A-z*A^2): Gser:=simplify(series(G, z=0, 10)): for n from 1 to 8 do P[n]:=coeff(Gser, z^n) od: for n from 1 to 8 do seq(coeff(P[n], t^k), k=1..2*n) od; # yields sequence in triangular form
