Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

COMMENTS

Sum of n-th row is (n+1)^3. The n-th row contains 3n+1 entries. Largest coefficients in rows are listed in A077043. The 255-th row describes distribution of color lattice points in the 765 r+g+b=k planes of 24 bitRGB-cube with 256^3 points.

The number of cubes 1 X 1 X 1 used to build a cube by layers perpendicular to the great diagonal. Each layer is made 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 n-th 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 6-nomial triangle. - Bob Selcoe, Feb 18 2014
