COMMENTS

A125076 is #3 in an infinite set, where Pascal's triangle = #2. Generally, the infinite set is constrained by two properties: For triangle N, row sums are powers of N and upward sloping diagonals have roots equal to N + 2*Cos 2Pi/Q.
The triangle may be constructed by considering the rows of A152063 as upward sloping diagonals. [From Gary W. Adamson, Nov 26 2008]

FORMULA

Upward sloping diagonals are alternating (unsigned) characteristic polynomial coefficients of two forms of matrices: all 1's in the super and subdiagonals and (2,3,3,3...) in the main diagonal and the other form all 1's in the super and subdiagonals and (3,3,3...) in the main diagonal.


EXAMPLE

First few rows of the triangle are:
1;
1, 2;
1, 3, 5;
1, 5, 8, 13;
1, 6, 19, 21, 34;
1, 8, 25, 65, 55, 89;
1, 9, 42, 90, 210, 144, 233;
...
For example, the upward sloping diagonal (1, 8, 19, 13) is derived from x^3  8x^2 + 19x  13, characteristic polynomial of the 3 X 3 matrix [2, 1, 0; 1, 3, 1;, 0, 1, 3], having an eigenvalue of 3 + 2*Cos 2Pi/7. The next upward sloping diagonal is (1, 9, 25, 21), derived from the characteristic polynomial x^3  9x^2 + 25x  21 and the matrix [3, 1, 0; 1, 3, 1; 0, 1, 3]. An eigenvalue of this matrix and a root of the corresponding characteristic polynomial is 4.414213562... = 3 + 2*Cos 2Pi/8.
