COMMENTS

Similar to A181388, this occurs as binary encoding of a straight n-omino lying on the y-axis, when the grid points of the first quadrant (N x N, N={0,1,2,...}) are given the weight 2^k, with k=0, 1,2, 3,4,5, ... filled in by antidiagonals.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..15.

EXAMPLE

Label the cells of an infinite square matrix with 0,1,2,3... following antidiagonals:

0 1 3 6 10 ...

2 4 7 ...

5 8 ...

9 ...

....

Now any subset of these cells can be represented by the sum of 2 raised to the power written in the given cells. In particular, the subset consisting of the first cell in the first 1, 2, 3,... rows is represented by 2^0, 2^0+2^2, 2^0+2^2+2^5, ...

PROG

(PARI) t=0; vector(20, n, t+=2^(n*(n+1)/2-1)) \\ yields the vector starting with a[1]=1

(PARI) t=0; vector(20, n, if(n>1, t+=2^(n*(n-1)/2-1))) \\ yields the vector starting with 0
