A128735 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of skew Dyck paths of semilength n and having k LDU's (n >= 0; 0 <= k <= floor((n-1)/3) for n >= 1). 2

COMMENTS
A skew Dyck path is a path in the first quadrant which begins at the origin, ends on the x-axis, consists of steps U=(1,1)(up), D=(1,-1)(down) and L=(-1,-1)(left) so that up and left steps do not overlap. The length of the path is defined to be the number of its steps.
Row n has ceiling(n/3) terms (n >= 1).
Row sums yield A002212.
T(n,0) = A128736(n).
Apparently, T(3k+1,k) = binomial(3k,k)/(2k+1) = A001764(k).

FORMULA
Sum_{k>=0} k*T(n,k) = A128737(n).
G.f.: G = G(t,z) satisfies (t+1)zG^3 - (2 - 4z + 3tz)G^2 + 3(1 - 2z + tz)G - 1 + 2z - tz = 0.
EXAMPLE
T(7,2)=3 because we have UUUD(LDU)UUD(LDU)D, UUUUD(LDU)UD(LDU)D and UUUUUD(LDU)D(LDU)D (the LDU's are shown between parentheses).
