A230150 Irregular triangle read by rows: Possible numbers of pieces resulting from cutting a convex n-sided polygon along all its diagonals. 1

COMMENTS

Beginning from number of sides equal to 18 the terms no longer increase between rows. For example, the number of pieces for the regular 18-gon is fewer than the number of pieces for regular 17-gon.

Obviously there exists a number k_0 such that k_0 is not in the sequence and k is in the sequence for all k > k_0.

FORMULA

a(n,s_1,...,s_m) = A006522(n) - sum_{k=1}^m s_k*k*(k+1)/2, where m = floor(n/2)-2 and s_k denotes number of inner points in which exactly k+2 diagonals are intersected.

EXAMPLE

The beginning of the irregular triangle is:

3| 1

4| 4

5| 11

6| 24, 25

7| 47, 48, 49, 50,

8| 80, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91

9| 137 (incomplete)
