Singularities in Pascal Triangle.
Posted:
Jun 30, 2013 7:52 AM


I have this problem:
Compute the numbers in the Pascal Triangle, but on some positions (X,Y), the pascal triangle has 0, instead of the sum of P(X, Y1) + P(X1, Y1) , each time when X is in relation R with Y.
Obviously, if I am asked to compute the Pascal Triangle, I do not recursivelly compute the sums for each pair, but I compute the combinations(X,Y).
I wish to ask you whether the methods of analytic combinatorics can help to solve this problem  to find the values using some analytical formula instead of recurrence.
