COMMENTS

Binomial transform of A095121. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 05 2012

Create a triangle having its left and right border both equal to the n-th row of Pascal's triangle, and internal terms m(i,j)=m(i-1,j-1)+m(i-1,j). Then the sum of all elements equals a(n). - J. M. Bergot, Oct 07 2012, edited by M. F. Hasler, Oct 10 2012

First differences of A090326 (with offset 1). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Jul 08 2014
