 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS When this walk is further restricted to the subset of the plane x-y <= 2, this gives the sequence A046717. Similarly, the sequence for such a walk restricted to x-y <= w (w > 2) is not present in the OEIS. The reference provided proves recurrences for generating functions in w.
