A279967


Square array read by antidiagonals upwards in which each term is the sum of prior elements in the same row, column, diagonal, or antidiagonal that divide n; the array is seeded with an initial value a(1)=1.

COMMENTS

From Hartmut F. W. Hoft, Jan 23 2017: (Start)
Shown by induction and direct (modular) computations for
column 1: Every number is even, except for the first two 1's; in addition to row 3, value 2 occurs in rows 4*k and 4*k+1, and every value in rows 4*k+2 and 4*k+3 is divisible by 4, for all k>=1.
column 2: The first four entries, 2, 2, 9 and 10, contain the only odd number; no nonzero entry in row k>3 has 9 as a factor, and value 0 occurs in rows 4*k+1 and 4*k+2, for all k>=1.
Conjecture:
a({1, 6, 8, 9, 10, 15, 26, 45, 48, 84, 96, 112, 115, 252, 336, 343}) =
{1, 7, 9,10, 15, 17, 30, 49, 48,104,117, 115, 122, 257, 343, 395} are the only numbers in the sequence with the property a(n) >= n (verified through n=500500, i.e., the triangle with 1000 antidiagonals).
This conjecture together with Bouniakowsky's conjecture that certain quadratic integer polynomials generate infinitely many primes (e.g. see A002496 for n^2+1 and A188382 for 2*n^2+n+1) implies that in every column in the triangle infinitely many prime sequence indices occur and therefore infinitely many 0's whenever the column contains no 1's. The proof is based on the fact that for a large enough prime sequence index p in whose prior column no 1 occurs then a(p)=0; therefore infinitely many 0's occur in that column. Obviously, once value 1 occurs in a column no 0 value can occur in a subsequent row.
Conjecture:
Every row in the triangle contains exactly two 1's.

EXAMPLE

After 6 terms, the array looks like:
.
1 2 7
1 2
2
We have a(6) = 7 because a(1) = 1, a(3) = 2, a(4) = 2, and a(5) = 2 divide 6; 1 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 7.

.
Expanded the triangle to the first 13 antidiagonals of the array, i.e. a(1) ... a(91), to show the start of the 2 and 0value patterns in columns 1 and 2. The first 0 beyond column 2 is a(677) in row 27, column 11 of the triangle.
A188382(n)=2*n^2+n+1 for n>=0 are the alternate sequence indices for column 1 starting in row 1, 2*n^2+n+2 for n>=1 are the alternate sequence indices for column 2 starting in row 2, and 2*n^2+n+11 for n>=5 are the alternate sequence indices for column 11 starting in row 1.
The sequence indices in the triangle for row positions k>=1 in columns 1,..., 5 are given in sequences A000124(k), A152948(k+3), A152950(k+3), A145018(k+4) and A167499(k+4).
