COMMENTS

The exponential generating function of the triangular numbers was given in Sloane & Plouffe as g(x) = (1 + 2x + (x^2)/2)*e^x = 1 + 3*x + 3*x^2 + (5/3)*x^3 + (5/8)*x^4 + (7/40)*x^5 + (1/896)*x^6 + (11/72576)*x^7 + ... = 1 + 3*x/1! + 6*(x^2)/2! + 10*(x^3)/3! + 15*(x^4)/4! + ...

FORMULA

A110560(n)/A110561(n) is the n-th coefficient of the exponential generating function of T(n), the triangular numbers A000217.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 3 because T(3+1)/3! = T(4)/3! = (4*5/2)/(1*2*3) = 10/6 = 5/3 so the fraction has denominator 3 and numerator A110560(3) = 5. Furthermore, the 3rd term of the exponential generating function of the triangular numbers is (5/3)*x^3.
