Combinatorics of Riordan arrays with identical \(A\) and \(Z\) sequences. (English) Zbl 1243.05007
Summary: In theory, Riordan arrays can have any A-sequence and any Z-sequence. For examples of combinatorial interest they tend to be related. Here we look at the case that they are identical or nearly so. We provide a combinatorial interpretation in terms of weighted Łukasiewicz paths and then look at several large classes of examples.
