 OFFSET 3,2 COMMENTS If pi is any permutation of [n] with exactly 1 descent, then the number of preimages of pi under West's stack-sorting map that have k+1 valleys is at most T(n,k). LINKS C. Defant, Preimages under the stack-sorting algorithm, arXiv:1511.05681 [math.CO], 2015-2018. C. Defant, Preimages under the stack-sorting algorithm, Graphs Combin., 33 (2017), 103-122. C. Defant, Stack-sorting preimages of permutation classes, arXiv:1809.03123 [math.CO], 2018. FORMULA T(n,k) = Sum_{i=1..n-2} Sum_{j=1..k} V(i,j) * V(n-1-i,m+1-j), where V(i,j) = 2^{i-2j+1} * (1/j) * binomial(i-1, 2j-2) * binomial(2j-2, j-1) are the numbers found in the triangle A091894. EXAMPLE Triangle begins:     1;     4;    12,    2;    32,   16;    80,   80,   5;   192,  320,  60;   448, 1120, 420, 14;   ... T(1,1) = 1 because the permutation 213 has one preimage under West's stack-sorting map (namely, 231), and this permutation has 2 valleys.
