Garsia and Haglund call these Tesler matrices. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jul 04 2014

This is also the value of the type A_n Kostant partition function evaluated at (1,1,...,1,-n) in ZZ^(n+1). This is the number of ways of writing the vector (1,1,...,1,-n) in ZZ^(n+1) as a linear combination with nonnegative integer coefficients of the vectors e_i - e_j, for 1 <= i<j <= n+1. - Alejandro H. Morales, Mar 11 2014

For n = 3 there are seven matrices: [[1,0,0],[0,1,0],[0,0,1]], [[1,0,0],[0,0,1],[0,0,2]], [[0,0,1],[0,1,0],[0,0,2]], [[0,0,1],[0,0,1],[0,0,3]], [[0,1,0],[0,2,0],[0,0,1]], [[0,1,0],[0,1,1],[0,0,2]], [[0,1,0],[0,0,2],[0,0,3]], so a(3) = 7. - Alejandro H. Morales, Jul 03 2015
