COMMENTS

Also number of ballot sequences of length n with k ascents; also number of standard Young tableaux with n cells such that there are k pairs of cells (v,v+1) with v+1 lying in a row below v. - Joerg Arndt, Feb 21 2014

FORMULA

Sum_{k=1..n} T(n,k) = A000085(n) (row sums).

Sum_{k=0..n-1} k*T(n,k) = A161125(n).

Generating polynomial of row n is P(n,t) = (1-t)^(n+1) * Sum_{r>=0} t^r*Sum_{k=0..floor(n/2)} C(r(r+1)/2+k-1,k)*C(r+n-2k,n-2k) (see Eq. (2.5) in the Guo-Zeng paper; see first Maple program).

Recursive relation for n >= 3, k >= 0: n*T(n,k) = (k+1)*T(n-1,k) + (n-k)*T(n-1,k-1) + [(k+1)^2 + n-2]*T(n-2,k) + [2k(n-k-1)-n+3]*T(n-2,k-1] + [(n-k)^2+n-2]*T(n-2,k-2) (see Eq. (2.4) in the Guo-Zeng paper; see 2nd Maple program).

EXAMPLE

T(4,2)=4 because we have 1432, 2143, 4231, and 3214.
