 OFFSET 0,3 REFERENCES William G. Harter, Physics Department, University of Arkansas; personal communication. LINKS FORMULA Triangle read by rows, characteristic polynomials (with alternate signs) of matrices of the form: 2, 1, 0, 0,...1 1, 2, 1, 0,...0 0, 1, 2, 1,...0 .. i.e. (2,2,2...) in the main diagonal, 1's in the super and subdiagonals and "1" in the upper right position. EXAMPLE First few rows of the triangle are: 1; 1, 2; 1, 4, 3; 1, 6, 10, 5; 1, 8, 21, 20, 4; 1, 10, 36, 56, 35, 7; 1, 12, 55, 120, 126, 56, 6; ... Example: Charpoly of the 4 X 4 matrix [2,1,0,1; 1,2,1,0; 0,1,2,1; 0,0,1,2] = x^4 - 8*x^3 + 21*x^2 - 20*x + 4; with a root (sqrt(3)+2). Charpoly of the 3 X 3 matrix [2,1,1; 1,2,1; 0,1,2] = x^2 - 4*x + 3 and has a root 3.6180339... = phi + 2.
