COMMENTS

The expansion of (a + b + c + d)^r = Sum_{p=0..r} Sum_{m=0..p} Sum_{k=0..m} binomial(r,p)*binomial(p,m)*binomial(m,k)*a^(r-n)*b^(n-m)*c^(m-k)*d^k. Starting at r=0, the r-th slice of the 4D simplex is a 3D tetrahedron whose sequence starts at a(0) when r=0 and starts at a(n) where n=binomial(r+3,4). It has binomial(r+3,3) terms whose sum is 4^r. The greatest numbers in each 3D tetrahedron form A022917. Also, the coefficients S(r,p,m,k) of a, b, c, d in (a + b + c + d)^n can be defined recursively: S(r+1, p, m, k) = S(r, p-1, m-1, k-1) + S(r, p-1, m-1, k) + S(r, p-1, m, k) + S(r, p, m, k) with S(r, p, m, -1) = 0, ...; and S(0, 0, 0, 0) = 1. The coefficient S(r, p, m, k) occurs at a(n) in the sequence where n = binomial(r+3,4) + binomial(p+2,3) + binomial(m+1,2) + binomial(k,1).

T(n,i,j,k) is the number of lattice paths from (0,0,0,0) to (n,i,j,k) with steps (1,0,0,0), (1,1,0,0), (1,1,1,0) and (1,1,1,1). - Dimitri Boscainos, Aug 16 2015

FORMULA

S(r,p,m,k) = binomial(r,p)*binomial(p,m)*binomial(m,k) and occurs at a(n) in the above sequence where n = binomial(r+3,4) + binomial(p+2,3) + binomial(m+1,2) + binomial(k,1).
