COMMENTS

The hypergeometric function 3F2([1,n+1,n+1],[n+2,n+2],z) = (n+1)^2*Li2(z)/z^(n+1)  MN(z;n)/(n!^2*z^n) for n >= 1, with Li2(z) the dilogarithm. The polynomial coefficients of MN(z;n) lead to the triangle given above.
We observe that 3F2([1,1,1],[2,2],z) = Li2(z)/z and that 3F2([1,0,0],[1,1],z) = 1.
The generating function for the EG1[3,n] coefficients of the EG1 matrix, see A162005, is GFEG1(z;m=2) = 1/(1z)*(3*zeta(3)/22*z*log(2)* 3F2([1,1,1],[2,2],z) + sum((2^(12*n)* factorial(2*n1)*z^(n+1)*3F2([1,n+1,n+1],[n+2,n+2],z))/(factorial(n+1)^2), n=1..infinity)).
The zeros of the MN(z;n) polynomials for larger values of n get ever closer to the unit circle and resemble the full moon, hence we propose to call the MN(z;n) the moon polynomials.

FORMULA

a(n,m) = ((n+1)!/m)^2 for n >= 1 and 1 >= m <= n.


EXAMPLE

The first few rows of the triangle are:
[4]
[36, 9]
[576, 144, 64]
[14400, 3600, 1600, 900]
The first few MN(z;n) polynomials are:
MN(z;n=1) = 4
MN(z;n=2) = 36 + 9*z
MN(z;n=3) = 576 + 144*z + 64*z^2
MN(z;n=4) = 14400 + 3600*z + 1600*z^2 + 900*z^3


MAPLE

a := proc(n, m): ((n+1)!/m)^2 end: seq(seq(a(n, m), m=1..n), n=1..7); # Johannes W. Meijer, revised Nov 29 2012
