 A152877 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of permutations of {1,2,...,n} having k consecutive triples of the form (odd,even,odd) and (even,odd,even) (0<=k<=n-2). 5

%N Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of permutations of {1,2,...,n} having k consecutive triples of the form (odd,even,odd) and (even,odd,even) (0<=k<=n-2).

%C Row n has n-1 entries (n>=2).

%C Sum of entries in row n is n! (A000142(n)).

%C T(n,0) = A152876(n).

%C T(n,n-2) = A092186(n).

%C T(2n+1,2n-2) = A047677(n) = 2*n!*(n+1)!. - _Alois P. Heinz_, Nov 10 2013

%F It would be good to have a formula or generating function for this sequence (a formula for column 0 is given in A152876).

%F Sum_{k>=1} k*T(n,k) = A329550(n). - _Alois P. Heinz_, Nov 16 2019
