COMMENTS

Sum of nth row is n^3. The nth row contains 3n2 entries. Largest coefficients in rows are listed in A077043. The 255th row describes distribution of color lattice points in the 765 r+g+b=k planes of 24bit RGBcube with 256^3 points.
Also, the number of cubes of dimension 1 X 1 X 1 needed to build a cube by layers perpendicular to the main diagonal. Each layer is made up of regular triangular numbers T near the summits and truncated T's in the middle. E.g., cube 3^3 is made of layers 1, 3, 6, 7, 6, 3, 1, using T1, T2, T3 and a regularly truncated T4, 7 instead of 10.  M. Dauchez (mdzzdm(AT)yahoo.fr), Aug 31 2005
The nth row is the third row of the (n+1)nomial triangle. For example, row 1 (1,3,3,1) is the third row in the binomial triangle; row 5 is the third row of the 6nomial triangle.  Bob Selcoe, Feb 18 2014
It appears that T(n,k) gives the number of possible ways of randomly selecting k cards from n1 sets, each with three different playing cards.  Juan Pablo Herrera P., Nov 04 2016

FORMULA

From Juan Pablo Herrera P., Oct 17 2016: (Start)
T(n,k) = A000217(k+1) = (k+2)!/(k!*2) if 0 <= k < n,
T(n,k) = (9*n3*n^2+6*k*n6*k2*k^24)/2 if n3 < k < 2*n,
T(n,k) = A000217(3nk2) = (3*nk1)!/((3*(n1)k)!*2) if 2*n3 < k < 3*n2.
T(n,k) = Sum_{i=kn+1..k} A004737(T(n,i)),
T(n,k) = Sum_{i=kn+1..k} (nni1) if n <= k <= 2*n+1. (End)
