In their article "On n-Gorenstein rings and Auslander rings of low injective dimension" Fuller and Iwanaga gave a homological characterisation of 2-Gorenstein Nakayama algebras with global dimension at most three, see theorem 3.16. there. Now Nakayama algebras (we always assume they are acyclic) are in natural bijection to Dyck paths. Call a Dyck path nice in case the corresponding Nakayama algebra is 2-Gorenstein with global dimension at most 3, see below for an elementary combinatoria description. I noticed with the computer that nice Dyck paths seem to be enumerated by $2^{n-2}$ (thats why I call them nice) and the subclass of nice Dyck paths with global dimension at most two by the Fibonacci numbers. This leads to the following question:

Question 1: Is there is a bijective proof mapping nice Dyck paths to some known/nice combinatorial objects?

Furthermore, to every nice Dyck path there is associated a canonical bijection and I wonder what this bijection is (there is a motivation to call this bijection homological rowmotion as it generalises the classical rowmotion from certain posets to more general combinatorial objects such as certain Dyck paths).

Question 2: What is the associated bijection to a nice Dyck path?

I currently have no elementary description so question 2, is more of a guess from the data what it might be.

An $n$-*Kupisch series* (which we can identify with a Dyck path via its area sequence) is a list of $n$ numbers $c:=[c_1,c_2,...,c_n]$ with $c_n=1$, $c_i \ge 2$ for $i \neq n$ and $c_i-1 \leq c_{i+1}$ for all $i=1,...,n-1$ and setting $c_0:=c_n$.
The number of such $n$-Kupisch series is equal to $C_{n-1}$ (Catalan numbers).

Here are some examples of the nice Dyck paths for small $n$ together with the bijection on $\{1,..,n\}$.

In the following I give the elemenatary combinatorial description of nice Dyck paths. Sadly, it is quite complicated at the moment despite the possibly very nice enumeration.

I found the following combinatorial characterisation of those Dyck paths (compare with Combinatorics problem related to Motzkin numbers with prize money I ):

The *CoKupisch series* $d$ of $c$ is defined as $d=[d_1,d_2,...,d_n]$ with $d_i:= \min \{k | k \geq c_{i-k} \} $ and $d_1=1$. One can show that the $d_i$ are a permutation of the $c_i$. A number $a \in \{1,...,n \}$ is a *descent* if $a=1$ or $c_a >c_{a-1}$. Define a corresponding set, indexed by descents: $X_1 := \{1,2,...,c_1-1 \}$, and $X_a := \{ c_{a-1}, c_{a-1}+1 ,..., c_a -1 \}$ for descents $a > 1$.

A $n$-Kupisch series is called $2-$Gorenstein if it satisfies the following condition:

- condition: for each descent $a$, and each $b \in X_a$: either $c_{a+b} \geq c_{a+b-1}$ or $d_{a+b-1} = d_{a+b + c_{a+b}-1} - c_{a+b}$ is satisfied.

Now an $n$-Kupisch path is nice if and only if it is 2-Gorenstein and it has global dimension at most 3. Sadly there is no nice formal description of global dimension at most 3 but it can be pictured in a nice way in a Dyck path.

Call an $i$ with $1 \leq i \leq n-1$ good in case one of the following three conditions hold:

$c_{i+1}=c_i -1$ (equivalent to the simple module $S_i$ having projective dimension one)

($c_{i+1}>c_i-1 $ and $c_{i+c_i}=c_{i+1}-c_i+1$) (equivalent to $S_i$ having projective dimension two)

($c_{i+1}>c_i-1 $ and $c_{i+c_i}>c_{i+1}-c_i+1$ and $c_{i+c_{i+1}+1}=c_{i+c_i}-c_{i+1}+c_i-1$) (equivalent to $S_i$ having projective dimension three)

Now the 2. condition is:

- condition: Every $i$ with $1 \leq i \leq n-1$ is good.

So an n-Kupisch series (=Dyck path) is nice if and only if it satisfies condition 1. and 2.
