FORMULA

Right diagonal is A000271, column k=0 is A000142; other entries given by a(n, k) = a(n, k+1) + 2a(n-1, k) + a(n-2, k-1).

EXAMPLE

Triangle starts:

  1;

  1, 0;

  2, 1, 0;

  6, 4, 1, 1;

  ...

MAPLE

a:= proc(n, k) option remember; `if`(k=0, n!, `if`(n=k,

      `if`(n<3, (n-1)*(n-2)/2, (n-1)*(a(n-1$2)+a(n-2$2))

      +a(n-3$2)), a(n, k+1) +2*a(n-1, k) +a(n-2, k-1)))

    end:

seq(seq(a(n, k), k=0..n), n=0..10);  # Alois P. Heinz, Jun 24 2017

MATHEMATICA

a[n_, n_] := (-1)^n*HypergeometricPFQ[{1, -n, n+1}, {1/2}, 1/4]; a[n_, k_] := a[n, k] = a[n, k+1] + 2*a[n-1, k] + a[n-2, k-1]; Table[a[n, k], {n, 0, 9}, {k, 0, n}] // Flatten (* Jean-François Alcover, Jun 24 2015 *)

CROSSREFS

Columns give A000142, A001563, A002775, A002776. Cf. A047920.
