A132439 Square array a(m,n) read by antidiagonals, where a(m,n) is the number of ways to move a chess queen from the lower left corner to square (m,n), with the queen moving only up, right, or diagonally up-right. 5

%N Square array a(m,n) read by antidiagonals, where a(m,n) is the number of ways to move a chess queen from the lower left corner to square (m,n), with the queen moving only up, right, or diagonally up-right.

%C a(m,n) is the sum of all the entries above it plus the sum of all the entries to the left of it plus the sum of all the entries on the northwest diagonal from it.
