A118032 Triangle T, read by rows, such that diagonal 2n of T equals diagonal n of T^2 and diagonal 2n+1 of T equals diagonal n of T*U: [T^2](n,k) = T(2n-k,k) and [T*U](n,k) = T(2n+1-k,k) for n>=k, k>=0, where U = SHIFT_UP(T). 17

COMMENTS

The diagonal bisections of this triangle T forms the diagonals of T^2 and T*U, where U = SHIFT_UP(T) indicates that U results from shifting each column of T up 1 row, dropping the main diagonal of all 1's.

FORMULA

T(2n-k,k) = Sum_{j=k..n} T(n,j)*T(j,k) = [T^2](n,k) for n>=k; odd-indexed diagonals: T(2n+1-k,k) = Sum_{j=k..n} T(n,j)*T(j+1,k) = [T*U](n,k) for n>=k; with T(n+1,n)=n+1, T(n,n)=1.

The matrix square of T, T^2, equals the even-indexed

diagonal bisection of T, or T^2 = A118040 =

1;

2, 1;

6, 4, 1;

16, 14, 6, 1;

44, 44, 24, 8, 1;

116, 130, 84, 36, 10, 1;

294, 364, 270, 136, 50, 12, 1;

748, 990, 780, 476, 200, 66, 14, 1; ...

Let U = SHIFT_UP(T), which shifts each column of T up 1 row

and drops the main diagonal, so that U =

1;

2, 2;

3, 4, 3;

6, 8, 6, 4;

9, 14, 15, 8, 5;

16, 28, 24, 24, 10, 6; ...

Then the matrix product T*U equals the odd-indexed

diagonal bisection of T, or T*U = A118045 =

1;

3, 2;

9, 8, 3;

26, 28, 15, 4;

73, 86, 57, 24, 5;

191, 250, 192, 96, 35, 6;

500, 696, 567, 356, 145, 48, 7;

1234, 1824, 1683, 1060, 590, 204, 63, 8; ...

Thus interleaving diagonals of T^2 and T*U forms T.
