COMMENTS

Essentially the same as A098925: a(0)=0 followed by A098925. [R. J. Mathar, Aug 30 2008]
F(n) + 2x * F(n1) gives Lucas polynomials (cf. A034807).  Maxim Krikun (krikun(AT)iecn.unancy.fr), Jun 24 2007
After the initial 0, these are the nonzero coefficients of the Fibonacci polynomials; see the Mathematica section.  Clark Kimberling, Oct 10 2013
Aside from signs and index shift, the coefficients of the characteristic polynomial of the Coxeter adjacency matrix for the Coxeter group A_n related to the Chebyshev polynomial of the second kind (cf. Damianou link pg. 19).  Tom Copeland, Oct 11 2014

FORMULA

Alternatively, as n is even or odd: T(n2, k) + T(n1, k1) = T(n, k), T(n2, k) + T(n1, k) = T(n, k)
T(n, k)=binomial(floor(n/2)+k, floor((n1)/2k) )  Paul Barry, Jun 22 2005
Beginning with the second polynomial in the example and offset=0, P(n,t)= sum(j=0,..,n, binom(nj,j)*x^j) with the convention that 1/k! is zero for k=1,2,..., i.e., 1/k!=limit 1/(k+a)! as a tends to zero.  Tom Copeland, Oct 11 2014

CROSSREFS

Upward diagonals sums are A062200. Downward rows are A102427. Row sums are A000045. Row terms reversed = A011973. Also A102427, A102428, A102429.
All of A011973, A092865, A098925, A102426, A169803 describe essentially the same triangle in different ways.
