 A182900 Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of weighted lattice paths in B(n) having k valleys. The members of B(n) are paths of weight n that start at (0,0), end on but never go below the horizontal axis, and whose steps are of the following four kinds: an (1,0)-step with weight 1, an (1,0)-step with weight 2, a (1,1)-step with weight 2, and a (1,-1)-step with weight 1. The weight of a path is the sum of the weights of its steps. A valley is a (1,-1)-step followed by a (1,1)-step. 3

%N Triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of weighted lattice paths in B(n) having k valleys. The members of B(n) are paths of weight n that start at (0,0), end on but never go below the horizontal axis, and whose steps are of the following four kinds: an (1,0)-step with weight 1, an (1,0)-step with weight 2, a (1,1)-step with weight 2, and a (1,-1)-step with weight 1.

%C Sum of entries in row n is A004148(n+1) (the 2ndary structure numbers).

%C T(n,0)=A182901(n).

%C Sum(k*T(n,k), k>=0) = A182902(n).

%C For the distribution of the statistic "number of peaks" see A162984. A peak is a (1,1)-step followed by a (1,-1)-step.

%F G. f.: F=F(v,z) satisfies z^3*(z+z^2+v-vz-vz^2)F^2 - (1-z-z^2-z^3+vz^3)F+1=0 (z marks weight, v marks number of valleys).

%F The trivariate g.f. H(u,v,z), where u (v) marks peaks (valleys) and z marks weight is given by H=1+zH+z^2*H+z^3*(u-1+H)[v(H-1-zH-z^2*H)+1+zH+z^2*H].

%e T(7,1)=4. Indeed, denoting by h (H) the (1,0)-step of weight 1 (2), and U=(1,1), D=(1,-1), we have hUDUD, UDUDh, UDUhD, and UhDUD.
