FORMULA

Triangle T(n, k), read by rows, given by [ -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, -7, ...] DELTA [1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, ...], where DELTA is the operator defined in A084938. - Philippe Deléham, Feb 20 2005

a(n,m) = a(n-1,m-1) - (2*n-1)*a(n-1,m) with a(n,0) = (-1)^n*(2*n-1)!! and a(n,n) = 1. - Johannes W. Meijer, Jun 08 2009

Exponential Riordan array [1/sqrt(1 + 2*x), 1/2*log(1 + 2*x)] with e.g.f. (1 + 2*x)^((t - 1)/2) = 1 + (t-1)*x + (t-1)*(t-3)*x^2/2! + .... - Peter Bala, Jun 23 2014
