COMMENTS

Sum of nth row is (n+1)^3. The nth row contains 3n+1 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
