COMMENTS

2^n term triangle by rows, analogous to A160552 but multiplier is "3" instead of "2"
Row sums = powers of 5: (1, 5, 25, 125, 625,...).
Rows tend to A162957, obtained by taking (1, 3, 0, 0, 0,...) * A162956.

FORMULA

Follows the same analogous procedure as A160552 but multiplier is 3 instead of 2. (n+1)th row brings down nth row and appends to the right and equal number of terms following the rules: from left to right,let a = last term, b = current term, c = next term. Then c = 3*a + b except for the rightmost term = 3*a + 1.


EXAMPLE

The triangle begins:
0;
1;
1, 4;
1, 4, 7, 13;
1, 4, 7, 13, 7, 19, 34, 40;
1, 4, 7, 13, 7, 19, 34, 40, 7, 19, 34, 46, 40, 91, 142, 121;
...
Row 4 = (1, 4, 7, 13, 7, 19, 34, 40): brings down (1, 4, 7, 13) then 7 = 3*1 + 4, 19 = 3*4 + 7, 34 = 3*7 + 13, 40 = 3*13 + 1.


MAPLE

a:= proc(n) option remember; `if`(n<2, n,
(j> 3*a(j)+a(j+1))(n2^ilog2(n)))
end:
seq(a(n), n=0..100); # Alois P. Heinz, Jan 28 2017
