 A143024 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of non-crossing connected graphs on n nodes on a circle having root (a distinguished node) of degree 1 and having k edges (n >= 2, 1 <= k <= 2n-4). 0

 OFFSET 2,3 COMMENTS Row n contains 2n-4 terms, the first n-2 of which are 0. Row sums yield A089436. T(n,n-1) = A006013(n-2). Sum_{k=2..2n-4} k*T(n,k) = A143025. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=2..69.

Noy, Analytic combinatorics of non-crossing configurations, Discrete Math., 204, 203-229, 1999. FORMULA T(n,k) = 2*binomial(k-2, n-3)*binomial(3n-5, 2n-k-4)/(n-2) (n >= 3, 2 <= k <= 2n-4); T(2,1)=1; T(2,k)=0 (k >= 2). The trivariate g.f. G=G(t,s,z) for non-crossing connected graphs on nodes on a circle, with respect to number of nodes (marked by z), number of edges (marked by t) and degree of root (marked by s) is G=z + tszg^2/[z-ts(g - z + g^2)], where g=g(t,z) satisfies tg^3 + tg^2 - (1 + 2t)zg +(1 + t)z^2 = 0 (see Domb & Barrett, Eq. (47); Flajolet & Noy, Eq. (18)). EXAMPLE T(3,2)=2 because we have {AB,BC} and {AC, BC} (A is the root). Triangle starts: 1; 0, 2; 0, 0, 7, 2; 0, 0, 0, 30, 20, 4; 0, 0, 0, 0, 143, 156, 65, 10; MAPLE T:=proc(n, k) options operator, arrow: 2*binomial(k-2, n-3)*binomial(3*n-5, 2*n-k-4)/(n-2) end proc: 1; for n from 3 to 10 do 0, seq(T(n, k), k=2..2*n-4) end do; % yields sequence in triangular form CROSSREFS Cf.
