Array read by antidiagonals: T(m,n) = number of m X n matrices M with entries {0,1,2} that have M_{1,1}=0, M_{m,n}=2, are such that the rows and columns are monotonic without jumps of 2, and satisfy M_{(i+1),(j+1)} = M_{i,j} + (0 or 1).

COMMENTS

The monotonicity condition requires that M_{(i+1),j} = M_{i,j} + (0 or 1); M_{i,(j+1)} = M_{i,j} + (0 or 1).
These matrices can be cut into three connected pieces, containing the 0's, 1's, and 2's; there are two vertexdisjoint paths from the northandeast edges of the matrix to the southandwest edges.
Row (or column) n >= 1 has a linear recurrence (with constant coefficients) of order 2n+1.  Alois P. Heinz, Feb 07 2019
