 A233968 Number of steps between two valleys at height 0 in the infinite Dyck path in which the k-th ascending line segment has A141285(k) steps and the k-th descending line segment has A194446(k) steps, k >= 1. 3

 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Also first differences of A211978. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..42. FORMULA a(n) = 2*(A006128(n) - A006128(n-1)) = 2*A138137(n). EXAMPLE Illustration of initial terms as a dissection of a minimalist diagram of regions of the set of partitions of n, for n = 1..6: . _ _ _ _ _ _ . _ _ _ | . _ _ _|_ | . _ _ | | . _ _ _ _ _ | | | . _ _ _ | | . _ _ _ _ | | | . _ _ | | | . _ _ _ | | | | . _ _ | | | | . _ | | | | | . | | | | | | . . 2 4 6 12 16 30 . Also using the elements from the above diagram we can draw an infinite Dyck path in which the n-th odd-indexed segment has A141285(n) up-steps and the n-th even-indexed segment has A194446(n) down-steps. Note that the n-th largest peak between two valleys at height 0 is also the partition number A000041(n). 7.................................. . /\ 5.................... / \ /\ . /\ / \ /\ / 3.......... / \ / \ / \/ 2..... /\ / \ /\/ \ / 1.. /\ / \ /\/ \ / \ /\/ 0 /\/ \/ \/ \/ \/ . 2, 4, 6, 12, 16,... .
