COMMENTS

Every row begins with n and contains all values of k for which n is k-gonal number.

The cardinality of row n is A177025(n). In particular, if n is prime, then row n contains only n.

EXAMPLE

The table starts in row n=3 as:

3;

4;

5;

6, 3;

7;

8;

9, 4;

10, 3;

11;

12, 5;

13;

14;

15, 6, 3;

16, 4;

17;

18, 7;

19;

20;

Before 37 we have row {36, 13, 4, 3}. Thus 36 is k-gonal for k=3,4,13 and 36.

MAPLE

P := proc(n, k) n/2*((k-2)*n-k+4) ; end proc:

A177028 := proc(n) local k , j, r, kg ; r := {} ; for k from n to 3 by -1 do for j from 1 do kg := P(j, k) ; if kg = n then r := r union {k} ; elif kg > n then break ; end if; end do; end do: sort(convert(r, list), `>`) ; end proc:

for n from 3 to 20 do print(A177028(n)) ; end do: # R. J. Mathar, Apr 17 2011

MATHEMATICA

nn = 100; t = Table[{}, {nn}]; Do[n = 2; While[p = n*(4 - 2*n - r + n*r)/2; p <= nn, AppendTo[t[[p]], r]; n++], {r, 3, nn}]; Flatten[Reverse /@ t] (* T. D. Noe, Apr 18 2011 *)
