COMMENTS

The sum of the terms pertaining to the above product is the n-th Fibonacci number: 1 + 5 + 6 + 1 = 13.

n divides A073617(n+1) for n>=1; see the Mathematica section. [Clark Kimberling, Feb 29 2012]

FORMULA

A073617(n+1)=product[C(n+1-k,k) : 1<=k<=floor((n+1)/2)] for n>=1.

a(2n+1)/a(2n-1)= binomial(2n,n); a(2n)/a(2n-2)=(1/2)*binomial(2n,n); (a(2n+1)*a(2n-2))/(a(2n)*a(2n-1))]=2 - John Molokach, Sep 09 2013

EXAMPLE

The seventh diagonal is 1,5,6,1 and product of the terms = 30 hence a(6) = 30.
