COMMENTS

See A122366 for one half of odd powers of 2*x in terms of Chebyshev's T-polynomials.

This is, for n>=1, the left half of Pascal's triangle for even rows with the central coefficients divided by 2.

The signed version of this triangle, b(n,k):=a(n,k)*(-1)^(n-k), appears in the formula (1/2)*(2*sin(phi))^(2*n) = sum(b(n,k)*cos(2*(n-k)*phi),k=0..n-1)+a(n,n).

Correspondingly, (1/2)*(4*(1-x^2))^n = sum(b(n,k)*T(2*(n-k),x),k=0..n-1)+a(n,n).

The proofs follow from Euler's formula 2*x=2*cos(phi)=exp(i*phi)+exp(-i*phi) or 2*sqrt(1-x^2)=2*sin(phi)=(exp(i*phi)-exp(-i*phi))/i and the binomial formula.

FORMULA

a(n,k)=biniomial(2*n,k), k=0,...,n-1 and a(n,n)=binomial(2*n,n)/2, n>=1. Instead of a(0,0)=1 one should take 1/2.

EXAMPLE

[1/2];

[1,1];

[1,4,3];

[1,6,15,10];

[1,8,28,56,35];

...

Row n=3: [1,6,15,20/2=10] appears in ((2*x)^6)/2 = 1*T(6,x) + 6*T(4,x) + 15*T(2,x) + 10.

Row n=3: [1,6,15,20/2=10] appears in ((2*cos(phi))^6)/2 = 1*cos(6*phi) + 6*cos(4*phi) + 15*cos(2*phi) + 10.

The signed row n=3, [ -1,6,-15,+20/2=10], appears in ((4*(1-x^2))^3)/2 = -1*T(6,x) + 6*T(4,x) - 15*T(2,x) + 10).

The signed row n=3, [ -1,6,-15,+20/2=10], appears in ((2*sin(phi))^6)/2 = -1*cos(6*phi) + 6*cos(4*phi) - 15*cos(2*phi) + 10.
