COMMENTS

P_h = level h of Pascal's prism where P_1 = Pascal's triangle (A007318) and P_2 = denominators of Leibniz harmonic triangle (A003506). A sequence of length k through P is defined by P<h(n), i(n), j(n)> for n = {1, 2, 3, ..., k}.

FORMULA

a_(h, i, j) = (h+i-2; h-1, i-j, j-1), h >= 1, i >= 1, 1 <= j <= i.

Recurrence:

For P_h, element a is given by: a_(1, 1) = 1; a_(i, j) = ((i+h-2)/(i-1)) (a_(i-1, j) + a_(i-1, j-1))
