COMMENTS

With k=0 column added, becomes A094954.

Also, A(n,k) is the top-left element of the same 2 X 2 matrix raised to (k+1)-th power.

Also, A(n,k) is the denominator of the rational number which has continued fraction expansion consisting of k repeats of [1, n]. Example: the row (3, 11, 41, ...) is extracted from denominators of the continued fractions [0; 1, 2], [0; 1, 2, 1, 2], ... = 2/3, 8/11, ...

Also, A(n,k)=Product_{i=1..k} (n+2+2*cos(2*Pi*i/(2*k+1))). This is somehow connected to the diagonal product formulas for (2*k+1)-gons found by Steinbach.

Row sums of the triangle = A162998: (1, 3, 29, 100, 369, 1458, ...).
