Triangle with index of asymmetry y = 1 and index of obliqueness z = 0, read by rows, with recurrence for G(n, k) as follows: G(n, 0) = G(n+1, n+1) = 1, G(n+2, n+1) = 2, G(n+3, k) = G(n+1, k-1) + G(n+1, k) + G(n+2, k) for k = 1..(n+1).

Triangle with index of asymmetry y = 1 and index of obliqueness z = 1, read by rows, with recurrence for G(n, k) as follows: G(n, n) = G(n+1, 0) = 1, G(n+2, 1) = 2, G(n+3, k) = G(n+1, k-1) + G(n+1, k-2) + G(n+2, k-1) for k = 2..(n+2). [Edited by Petros Hadjicostas, Jun 11 2019]

From Petros Hadjicostas, Jun 10 2019: (Start)

For the triangle with index of asymmetry y = 1 and index of obliqueness z = 0, read by rows, we have G(n, k) = A140998(n, k) for 0 <= k <= n.

For the triangle with index of asymmetry y = 1 and index of obliqueness z = 1, read by rows, we have  G(n, k) = A140993(n+1, k+1) for n >= 0 and k >= 0.

Thus, except for the (unfortunate) shifting of the indices by 1, triangular arrays A140998 and A140993 are mirror images of each other.

FORMULA

a(n) = max(A140993(n,k), k = 1..n). - R. J. Mathar, Apr 28 2010

a(n) = max(A140998(n-1, k-1), k = 1..n). - Petros Hadjicostas, Jun 10 2019

EXAMPLE

Triangle with y = 1 and z = 0 (i.e., triangle A140998) begins as follows:

a(1) = max(1) = 1;

a(2) = max(1, 1) = 1;

a(3) = max(1, 2, 1) = 2;

a(4) = max(1, 4, 2, 1) = 4;

a(5) = max(1, 7, 5, 2, 1) = 7;

a(6) = max(1, 12, 11, 5, 2, 1) = 12;

a(7) = max(1, 20, 23, 12, 5, 2, 1) = 23;

a(8) = max(1, 33, 46, 28, 12, 5, 2, 1) = 46;

a(9) = max(1, 54, 89, 63, 29, 12, 5, 2, 1) = 89;

MAPLE

# Here, BB is the bivariate g.f. of sequence A140993.

BB := proc(x, y) y*x*(1 - y*x - x^2*y^2 + x^3*y^2)/((1 - x)*(1 - y*x)*(1 - y*x - x^2*y - x^2*y^2)); end proc;

#

# Here, we find the n-th row of sequence A140993 and find the maximum of the row:

ff := proc(n) local xx, k, yy;

xx := 0;

for k from 1 to n do

yy := coeftayl(coeftayl(BB(x, y), x = 0, n), y = 0, k);

xx := max(xx, yy); end do; xx;

end proc;

#

# Here, we print the maxima of the rows:

for i from 1 to 40 do

    ff(i);

end do; # Petros Hadjicostas, Jun 10 2019
