Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A337401 Triangle read by rows: T(n,w) is the number of n-step self avoiding walks on a 3D cubic lattice confined inside a tube of cross section 2w X 2w where the walk starts at the center of the tube's side. 3

FORMULA

For w>=n, T(n,w) = A116904(n).

EXAMPLE

T(2,1) = 19 as after a step in one of the two directions toward the adjacent tube side the walk must turn along the side; this eliminates the 2-step straight walk in those two directions, so the total number of walks is 4*4 + 5 - 2 = 19.
