COMMENTS

The term "Quintuple factorial numbers" is also used for the sequences A008546, A008548, A052562, A047055, A047056 which have a different definition. The definition given here is the one commonly used. This problem exists for the other rows as well. "n!2" = n!!, "n!3" = n!!!, "n!4" = n!!!!, etcetera. Main diagonal is A[n,n] = n!n = n.

FORMULA

A[k,n] = n!k, by antidiagonals.

EXAMPLE

Table begins:

k / A[k,n]

6.|.1.2.3..4...5...6....7....16.....27......40...=A085158.

MAPLE

A:= proc(k, n) option remember; if n >= 1 then n* A(k, n-k) elif n >= 1-k then 1 else 0 fi end: seq(seq(A(1+d-n, n), n=1..d), d=1..16); # Alois P. Heinz, Feb 02 2009

MATHEMATICA

A[k_, n_] := A[k, n] = If[n >= 1, n*A[k, n-k], If[n >= 1-k, 1, 0]]; Table[ A[1+d-n, n], {d, 1, 16}, {n, 1, d}] // Flatten (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, May 27 2016, after Alois P. Heinz *)
