(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A261070 Irregular triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of arrangements of n circles with 2k intersections (using the same rules as A250001). 5
1, 1, 2, 1, 4, 4, 2, 4, 9, 15 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

0,3

COMMENTS

Length of n-th row: 1 + (n-1)n/2 (for a configuration for T(n,(n-1)n/2), consider n circles of radius 1 and centers at (k/n,0) for 1<=k<=n).

The generating function down the column k=1 is 1+z^2 *C^2(z) *[C^2(z)+C(z^2)]/ (2*[1-z*C(z)]) = 1+ z^2 +4*z^3 +15*z^4+ 50*z^5+...where C(z) = 1+z+2*z^2+4*z^3+... is the g.f. of A000081 divided by z; eq. (78) in arXiv:1603.00077. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 05 2016
