Dyck paths on rectangles
No? Take the rectangle, rotate it 45 degrees clockwise so that the diagonal becomes the x-axis, then reflect it in the x-axis. |

Ah, yes. It can probably be fixed, somehow. |

Ilya seems to have confused variance and standard deviation. The variance of the sum of independent random variables is the sum of the variances: Var(X+Y)=Var(X)+Var(Y) so StdDev(X+Y)=sqrt(Var(X)+Var(Y)), which in general is not equal to StdDev(X)+StdDev(Y) |
