%N Irregular triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the number of n+2-sided polygons with the property that one makes k turns on itself while following its edges.

%C Polygons that differ by rotation or reflection are counted separately.

%C By "n+2-sided polygons" we mean the polygons that can be drawn by connecting n+2 equally spaced points on a circle (possibly self-intersecting).

%C T(0,0)=1 by convention.

%C To compute the number of turns, follow the edges of the polygon, and add the angles of rotation: positive if turning left, negative if turning right. Then take the absolute value of the sum (see illustration).

%H Ludovic Schwob, <a href="/A342968/a342968.pdf">Illustration of T(5,k), 0 <= k <= 3</a>

%F T(2*n-1,n)=1 for all n >= 1: the only solution is the polygon with Schläfli symbol {2*n+1/n}.

%e Triangle begins:

%e 0, 1;

%e 2, 1;

%e 5, 6, 1;

%e 24, 28, 8;

%e 119, 183, 57, 1;

%Y Row sums give A001710(n+1) (number of polygons with n+2 sides).
