COMMENTS

Conjecture: (i) Let n > 1 and N=2*n+1. Row n of T gives the coefficients of the characteristic polynomial p_N(x)=Sum_{k=0..n} T(n,k)*x^(n-k) of the n X n Danzer matrix D_{N,n-1} = {{0,...,0,1}, {0,...,0,1,1}, ..., {0,1,...,1}, {1,...,1}}. (ii) Let S_0(t)=1, S_1(t)=t and S_r(t)=t*S_(r-1)(t)-S_(r-2)(t), r > 1 (cf. A049310). Then p_N(x)=0 has solutions w_{N,j}=S_(n-1)(phi_{N,j}), where phi_{N,j}=2*(-1)^(j+1)*cos(j*Pi/N), j = 1..n. - L.

FORMULA

T(n,k) = (-1)^n*A066170(n,k).

abs(T(n,k)) = A046854(n,k) = abs(A066170(n,k)) = abs(A130777(n,k)).

abs(T(n,k)) = A065941(n,n-k) = abs(A108299(n,n-k)).
