%N Array: row n shows the coefficients of the characteristic polynomial of the n-th principal submatrix of max(3i-j, 3j-i), as in A204156.

%C Let p(n)=p(n,x) be the characteristic polynomial of the n-th principal submatrix. The zeros of p(n) are real, and they interlace the zeros of p(n+1). See A202605 and A204016 for guides to related sequences.
