COMMENTS

For the Pascal-like triangle G(n, k) with index of asymmetry y = 3 and index of obliqueness z = 0, which is read by rows, we have G(n, 0) = G(n+1, n+1) = 1, G(n+2, n+1) = 2, G(n+3, n+1) = 4, G(n+4, n+1) = 8, and G(n+5, k) = G(n+1, k-1) + G(n+1, k) + G(n+2, k) + G(n+3, k) + G(n+4, k) for n >= 0 and k = 1..(n+1). (This is array A140996.)

(This is array A140995.)

Arrays A140995 and A140996 are mirror images of each other. For discussion about their properties and their connection to Stepan's triangles, see their documentation. See also the documentation of the sequences in the CROSSREFS. - Petros Hadjicostas, Jun 13 2019

FORMULA

From Petros Hadjicostas, Jun 13 2019: (Start)

a(2*n - 1) = A140996(2*n - 1, n - 1) = A140995(2*n - 1, n) and a(2*n) = A140996(2*n - 1, n) = A140995(2*n - 1, n - 1) for n >= 1.

a(2*n) = a(2*n - 3) for n >= 3.

a(n) = 2*a(n-2) + A129847(floor(n/2) - (4 + (-1)^n)) for n >= 9.

G.f.: x*(x^8 + 3*x^6 + x^5 + 3*x^4 + x^3 + 3*x^2 + x + 1)/(1 - x^2 - x^4 - 2*x^6 -x^8).

(End)

EXAMPLE

Pascal-like triangle with y = 3 and z = 0 (i.e., A140996) begins as follows:

  1, so no central pair.

  1 1, so a(1) = 1 and a(2) = 1.

  1 2 1, so no central pair.

  1 4 2 1, so a(3) = 4 and a(4) = 2.

  1 8 4 2 1, so no central pair.

  1 16 8 4 2 1, so a(5) = 8 and a(6) = 4.

  1 31 17 8 4 2 1, so no central pair.

  1 60 35 17 8 4 2 1, so a(7) = 17 and a(8) = 8.

  1 116 72 35 17 8 4 2 1, so no central pair.

  1 224 148 72 35 17 8 4 2 1, so a(9) = 35 and a(10) = 17.

  1 432 303 149 72 35 17 8 4 2 1, so no central pair.

  1 833 618 308 149 72 35 17 8 4 2 1, so a(11) = 72 and a(12) = 35.
