FORMULA

Equivalent to number of partitions of n(2k-n+1)/2 into up to n parts each no more than 2k-n+1 so a(n, k)=A067059(n, n(2k-n+1)/2); row sums are A047653(n)-1 = A212352(n). - Henry Bottomley, Aug 11 2001

MATHEMATICA

a[n_, k_] := Length[ IntegerPartitions[ n*(2k - n + 1)/2, n, Range[2k - n + 1]]]; Flatten[ Table[ a[n, k], {k, 1, 11}, {n, 1, k}]] (* Jean-François Alcover, Jan 02 2012 *)
