%N Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of unordered pairs of vertices at distance k in the grid P_2 x P_n (1 <= k <= n). P_m is the path graph on m vertices.

%C Sum of entries in row n = n(2n-1) = A000384(n).

%C The entries in row n are the coefficients of the Wiener polynomial of the grid P_2 x P_n.

%C Sum_{k=1..n} k*T(n,k) = A131423(n) = the Wiener index of the grid P_2 x P_n.

%C The average of all distances in the grid P_2 x P_n is (n+2)/3.

%F G.f. = G(q,z) = qz(1+2z+qz)/((1-qz)(1-z)^2).

%e T(2,1)=4 because in the graph P_2 x P_2 (a square) we have 4 distances equal to 1.

%e Triangle starts:

%e 1;

%e 4, 2;

%e 7, 6, 2;

%e 10, 10, 6, 2;

%e 13, 14, 10, 6, 2;

%p G:=q*z*(1+2*z+q*z)/((1-z)^2*(1-q*z)): Gser:= simplify(series(G,z=0,15)): for n to 12 do p[n]:=sort(coeff(Gser,z,n)) end do: for n to 12 do seq(coeff(p[n],q, j),j=1..n) end do; # yields sequence in triangular form
