COMMENTS

Triangle read by rows in which row n lists the first n^2 positive integers in decreasing order, n >= 1. - Omar E. Pol, Jan 20 2015

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..65.

FORMULA

For 1 <= n <= 650, a(n) = -n + (t + 2)*(2*t^2 - t + 3)/6, where t = floor((3*n)^(1/3)+1/2).

EXAMPLE

From Omar E. Pol, Jan 20 2015: (Start)

Written as an irregular triangle in which row lengths are successive squares, the sequence begins:

1;

4, 3, 2, 1;

9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1;

16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1;

...

(End)
