Whenever the formula generates a zero, it is changed to a one in the sequence. - Harvey P. Dale, Sep 06 2013

FORMULA

G(n,k) = binomial(n,k)*binomial(2*k-2,k-1), n >= k > 0.

EXAMPLE

G(3,2)=6 because there are exactly 6 order-preserving partial transformations (on a 3-element chain) of both width and waist equal to 2, namely: (1,2)->(1,2),(1,2)->(2,2),(1,3)->(1,2),(1,3)->(2,2),(2,3)->(1,2),(2,3)->(2,2)
