The generalized Hosoya triangle is an arrangement of numbers in which each entry is a product of two generalized Fibonacci numbers. We prove the GCD property for 1 the star of David of length two. We give necessary and sufficient conditions such that the star of David of length three satisfies the GCD property. We propose some open questions and a… (More)
The Hosoya polynomial triangle is a triangular arrangement of polynomials where each entry is a product of two polynomials. The geometry of this triangle is a good 1 tool to study the algebraic properties of polynomial products. In particular, we find closed formulas for the alternating sum of products of polynomials such as Fibonacci polynomials, Chebyshev… (More)
The generalized Hosoya triangle is an arrangement of numbers where each entry is a product of two generalized Fibonacci numbers. We define a discrete convolution 1 C based on the entries of the generalized Hosoya triangle. We use C and generating functions to prove that the sum of every k-th entry in the n-th row or diagonal of generalized Hosoya triangle,… (More)
We construct a formal power series on several variables that encodes many statistics on non-decreasing Dyck paths. In particular, we use this formal power series to count peaks, pyramid weights, and indexed sums of pyramid weights for all non-decreasing Dyck paths of length 2n. We also show that an indexed sum on pyramid weights depends only on the size and… (More)
We construct a new family of minimal non-orientable matroids of rank three. Some of these matroids embed in Desarguesian projective planes. This answers a question of Ziegler: for every prime power q, find a minimal non-orientable submatroid of the projective plane over the q-element field.
