COMMENTS

a(n,m)= A053122(n,n-m).

G.f. for row polynomials and row sums same as in A053122.

Unsigned column sequences are A000012, A005843, A014105, A002492 for m=0..3, resp. and A053126-A053131 for m=4..9.

This is also the coefficient triangle for Chebyshev's U(2*n+1,x) polynomials expanded in decreasing odd powers of (2*x): U(2*n+1,x)=sum(a(n,m)*(2*x)^(2*(n-m)+1), m=0..n). See the W. Lang link given in A053125.

Unsigned version is mirror image of A078812 . [From Philippe Deléham, Dec 02 2008]

FORMULA

a(n, m) := 0 if n<m else (-1)^m*binomial(2*n+1-m, m);

a(n, m) := -2*a(n-1, m-1)+a(n-1, m)-a(n-2, m-2), a(n, -2) := 0 =: a(-2, m), a(n, -1) := 0 =: a(-1, m), a(0, 0)=1, a(n, m)= 0 if n<m;

G.f. for m-th column (signed triangle): ((-1)^m)*x^m*Po(m+1, x)/(1-x)^(m+1), with Po(k, x) := sum('binomial(k, 2*j+1)*x^j', 'j'=0..floor(k/2)).

The n-th degree polynomial is the characteristic equation for an n X n tridiagonal matrix with (diagonal = all 2's, sub and superdiagonals all -1's and the rest 0's), exemplified by the 4X4 matrix M = [2 -1 0 0 / -1 2 -1 0 / 0 -1 2 -1 / 0 0 -1 2]. - Gary W. Adamson, Jan 05 2005

sum(m=0..n, a(n,m)*(c(n))^(2*n-2*m) ) = 1/c(n), where c(n) = 2*cos(Pi/(2*n+3)). - L. Edson Jeffery, Sep 13 2013

EXAMPLE

1;

1,-2;

1,-4,3;

1,-6,10,-4;

1,-8,21,-20,5;

... E.g. fourth row (n=3) {1,-6,10,-4} corresponds to polynomial S(3,x-2)= x^3-6*x^2+10*x-4.

MAPLE
