Irregular triangle read by rows: T(n,k) is the difference between the total arch lengths of a semimeander multiplied by its number of exterior arches and total arch lengths of the semimeanders with n + 1 top arches generated by the exterior arch splitting algorithm on the given semimeander.

FORMULA

For n >= 2 and k = 2..floor((n+2)/2), T(n,k) = 4 + (n+2)*(k2).


EXAMPLE

n = number of top arches, k = number of exterior top arches:
n\k 2 3 4 5 6
2: 4
3: 4
4: 4 10
5: 4 11
6: 4 12 20
7: 4 13 22
8: 4 14 24 34
9: 4 15 26 37
10: 4 16 28 40 52
Length of each arch = 1 + number of arches covered:
Top arches of a given semimeander: Arch splitting generated
n = 5, k = 2 semimeanders (6 top arches):
1 1 = 2 exterior arches /\

21 321 = 9 length of top arches 1 1 4321 = 12 length of top arches
/\

///\\\ //\\ /\
321 21 1 = 10 length of top arches
T(5,2) = 4 + (5+2)(22) = 4  4 = (12+10)  (2 * 9);
Top arches of given semi meander:

T(5,3) = 4 + (5+2)(32) = 11  11 = (12+10+10)  (3 * 7).
