COMMENTS

Triangle can be used in matrix inverses. Signs in columns as in A153881.

Iff n is a triangular number, a(n)=1; otherwise, a(n)=-1. (This is explicitly implemented in the second Mathematica program below.) - Harvey P. Dale, Apr 27 2014

FORMULA

From G. C. Greubel, Mar 06 2021: (Start)

T(n, k) = -1 with T(n, n) = 1.

Sum_{k=1..n} T(n, k) = 2-n = -A023443(n-1) = -A023444(n). (End)

EXAMPLE

MAPLE

A154990 := proc(n, k)

    option remember;

    if k = n then

        1;

    elif k > n then

        0;

    else

        -1 ;

    end if;

end proc:

seq(seq(A154990(n, k), k=1..n), n=1..12) ; # R. J. Mathar, Sep 16 2017

MATHEMATICA

Flatten[Table[PadLeft[{1}, n, -1], {n, 15}]] (* or *) With[{tr=Accumulate[ Range[ 15]]}, Table[If[MemberQ[tr, n], 1, -1], {n, Last[tr]}]] (* Harvey P. Dale, Apr 27 2014 *)

PROG

(Sage) flatten([[1 if k==n else -1 for k in (1..n)] for n in (1..12)]) # G. C. Greubel, Mar 06 2021

(Magma) [k eq n select 1 else -1: k in [1..n], n in [1..12]]; // G. C. Greubel, Mar 06 2021
