COMMENTS

First column is periodically 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 (see A131078).

First subdiagonal is 1, 2, 4, 7, 11, 16, 22, ... (see A131075); next subdiagonals are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 16, 46, 140, ..., 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 8, 30, 94, 256, ..., 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 6, 22, 64, 162, 372, ..., 0, 0, 0, 1, 5, 16, 42, 98, 210, 420, ...., 0, 0, 1, 4, 11, 26, 56, 112, 210, 372, ..., 0, 1, 3, 7, 15, 30, 56, 98, 162, 256, ...,1, 2, 4, 8, 15, 26, 42, 64, 94, 140, ... . Main diagonal and eighth subdiagonal agree; generally j-th subdiagonal equals (j+8)-th subdiagonal.

Antidiagonal sums are 1, 1, 3, 3, 6, 5, 11, ... (see A131077).

FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1-x)^4/((1-2*x)*(1-4*x+6*x^2-4*x^3+2*x^4)).

a(1) = 1, a(2) = 2, a(3) = 4, a(4) = 8, a(5) = 15; for n > 5, a(n) = 6*a(n-1)-14*a(n-2)+16*a(n-3)-10*a(n-4)+4*a(n-5).
