Table of n, a(n) for n=1..15.

FORMULA

a(n) = (-1)^(n-1)*n^(n-2)*(n+1)*(n+2)*((n+3)^n-(n+1)^n)/(6*2^n).

EXAMPLE

a(4) = determinant of 4 X 4 matrix

| 1,  3,  6, 10|

|10,  1,  3,  6|

| 6, 10,  1,  3|

| 3,  6, 10,  1|

= -8880.

MATHEMATICA

tri[n_] := n (n + 1)/2; f[n_] := Det[ Table[ RotateLeft[ tri@ Range@ n, -j], {j, 0, n - 1}]]; Array[f, 15] (* or *)

f[n_] := (-1)^n*n^(n - 2)(n + 1)(n + 2)((n + 1)^n - (n + 3)^n)/(3*2^(n + 1)); Array[f, 15]  (* Robert G. Wilson v, Aug 31 2014 *)
