COMMENTS

Apart from the second diagonal (which gives the toothpick sequence A139250), the rest of the diagonals cannot be represented with toothpick structures. - Omar E. Pol, Dec 14 2016

FORMULA

See A162958 for rules governing the generation of N-th Toothpick sequences. By way of example, (N+2), A139250. The generator is A160552, which uses the multiplier "2". Then A160552 convolved with (1, 2, 2, 2,...) = A139250 the Toothpick sequence for N=2. Similarly, we create an array for Toothpick sequences N=1, 2, 3,...etc = A163267, A139250, A162958,...; then take the antidiagonals, creating triangle A163311.

CROSSREFS

Row sums = A163312: (1, 3, 8, 17, 34, 64,...).

Right border = A163267, toothpick sequence for N=1.

Next diagonal going to the left = A139250, toothpick sequence for N=2.

Then 1, 4, 10, 19,... = A162958, toothpick sequence for N=3.

Cf. A160552, A162958, A163311, A163312.

Sequence in context: A174829 A132110 A039912 * A210555 A008949 A076832
