COMMENTS

Row n contains 2n + 2 entries.
Sum of entries in row n = 3^n + 2^{2n+1} = A213659(n).

FORMULA

Generating polynomial of row n is x^(n+1)*(2+x)^n + x*(1+x)^(2*n+1); this is the domination polynomial of the graph G(n).
T(n,k) = 2^(2*n+1k)*binom(n,kn1) + binom(2*n+1,k1) (n>=1; 1<=k<=2*n+2).


EXAMPLE

Row 1 is 1,5,4,1 because the graph G(1) is abcd with edges ab, bc, bd, and cd; there is 1 dominating subset of size 1 ({b}),; all binom(4,2)=6 subsets of size 2 of {a,b,c,d} with the exception of {c,d} are dominating; all binom(4,3)=4 subsets of size 3 of {a,b,c,d} are dominating; obviously, {a,b,c,d} is dominating.
Triangle starts:
1,5,4,1;
1,5,14,14,6,1;
1,7,21,43,47,27,8,1;


MAPLE

T := proc (n, k) options operator, arrow: 2^(2*n+1k)*binomial(n, kn1)+binomial(2*n+1, k1) end proc: for n to 8 do seq(T(n, k), k = 1 .. 2*n+2) end do; # yields sequence in triangular form
