COMMENTS

Offdiagonal elements of angular momentum matrices J_1^2 and J_2^2.
Construct the infinitedimensional matrix representation of angular momentum operators (J_1,J_2,J_3) in the blockdiagonal, JordanSchwinger form (cf. Harter, Klee, Schwinger). The triangle terms T(n,k) satisfy:(1/2)T(n,k)^(1/2) = <n(n+1)/2+k+1J_1^2n(n+1)/2+k+3> = <n(n+1)/2+k+3J_1^2n(n+1)/2+k+1> =  <n(n+1)/2+k+1J_2^2n(n+1)/2+k+3> =  <n(n+1)/2+k+3J_2^2n(n+1)/2+k+1>. In the Dirac notation, we write elements m_{ij} of matrix M as <iMj>=m_{ij}. Matrices for J_1^2 and J_2^2 are sparse. These equalities and the centraldiagonal equalities of A141387 determine the only nonzero entries.
Notice that a(n) = T(n,k) is always a multiple of the triangular numbers, up to an offset. Conjecture: the triangle tabulating matrix elements <n(n+1)/2+k+1J_1^pn(n+1)/2+k+p+1> is determined entirely by the coefficients: binomial(n,p) (cf. A094053). Various sequences along the diagonals of matrix J_1^p lead to other numbers with geometric interpretations (Cf. A000567, A100165).
