COMMENTS

Given the initial row "2 2", is the rest of the triangle forced? If not, should this version have an additional clause in the definition saying "lexicographically earliest, given the first row"?

Eric Angelini asks if there is a similar triangle (self-describing and infinite) that contains at least one odd number.

EXAMPLE

Triangle begins:

2 2

4 2  2 4

6 2  4 4  2 6

8 2  6 4  4 6  2 8

10 2  8 4  6 6  4 8  2 10

12 2 10 4  8 6  6 8  4 10  2 12

14 2 12 4 10 6  8 8  6 10  4 12  2 14

16 2 14 4 12 6 10 8  8 10  6 12  4 14  2 16

18 2 16 4 14 6 12 8 10 10  8 12  6 14  4 16  2 18

20 2 18 4 16 6 14 8 12 10 10 12  8 14  6 16  4 18  2 20

...

Top line says: I see  two integers "2" so far

Next line says: I see four integers "2" and two integers "4" so far

Next line says: I see  six integers "2", four integers "4" and two integers "6" so far

etc.

The counts are thus cumulative. And the (easy-to-build) array infinite.
