A227578 Number A(n,k) of lattice paths from {n}^k to {0}^k using steps that decrement one component such that for each point (p_1,p_2,...,p_k) we have p_1<=p_2<=...<=p_k; square array A(n,k), n>=0, k>=0, read by antidiagonals. 25

COMMENTS

Conjecture: column k is asymptotic to c(k) * (k+1)^(k*n)/n^((k^2-1)/2), where c(k) is a constant dependent only on k. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Jul 21 2013

EXAMPLE

A(4,0) = 1: [()].

A(3,1) = 4: [(3),(0)], [(3),(1),(0)], [(3),(2),(0)], [(3),(2),(1),(0)].

A(2,2) = 5: [(2,2),(0,2),(0,0)], [(2,2),(0,2),(0,1),(0,0)], [(2,2),(1,2),(0,2),(0,0)], [(2,2),(1,2),(0,2),(0,1),(0,0)], [(2,2),(1,2),(1,1),(0,1),(0,0)].

A(1,3) = 1: [(1,1,1),(0,1,1),(0,0,1),(0,0,0)].

A(0,4) = 1: [(0,0,0,0)].

Square array A(n,k) begins:

  1,  1,    1,      1,        1,           1, ...

  1,  1,    1,      1,        1,           1, ...

  1,  2,    5,     14,       42,         132, ...

  1,  4,   29,    290,     3532,       49100, ...

  1,  8,  185,   7680,   456033,    34426812, ...

  1, 16, 1257, 238636, 77767945, 36470203156, ...

MAPLE

b:= proc(l) option remember; `if`(l[-1]=0, 1, add(add(b(subsop(

      i=j, l)), j=`if`(i=1, 0, l[i-1])..l[i]-1), i=1..nops(l)))

    end:

A:= (n, k)-> `if`(k=0, 1, b([n$k])):

seq(seq(A(n, d-n), n=0..d), d=0..10);

MATHEMATICA

b[l_] := b[l] = If[ l[[-1]] == 0, 1, Sum[ Sum[ b[ReplacePart[l, i -> j]], {j, If[i == 1, 0, l[[i-1]]], l[[i]]-1}], {i, 1, Length[l]}]]; a[n_, k_] := If[k == 0, 1, b[Array[n&, k]]]; Table[Table[a[n, d - n], {n, 0, d}], {d, 0, 10}] // Flatten (* Jean-François Alcover, Dec 09 2013, translated from Maple *)

CROSSREFS

Columns k=0-10 give: A000012, A011782, A059231, A227580, A227583, A227596, A227597, A227598, A227599, A227600, A227601.

Rows n=0+1, 2-10 give: A000012, A000108(k+1), A181197(k+2), A227584, A227602, A227603, A227604, A227605, A227606, A227607.

Main diagonal gives: A227579.

Cf. A060854 (steps decrement one component by 1), A262809, A263159.

A181196 is a similar but different array.

Sequence in context: A352893 A008326 A181196 * A181783 A121395 A275377
