%C Rows are expansions of p(x,n) = 2^n*(1 - x)^(1 + n)*LerchPhi(x, -n, 1/2). Row sums are A000165. - _Roger L. Bagula_, Sep 16 2008

%C Eulerian numbers of type B. The n-th row of this triangle is the h-vector of the simplicial complex dual to a permutohedron of type B_(n-1). For example, the permutohedron of type B_2 is an octagon whose dual, also an octagon, has f-polynomial f(x) = 1 + 8*x + 8*x^2 and h-polynomial given by (x-1)^2 + 8*(x-1) + 8 = 1 + 6*x + x^2, giving [1,6,1] as row 3 of this table (see Fomin and Reading, p. 21). The corresponding triangle of f-vectors for the type B permutohedra is A145901. The Hilbert transform of the current array is A145905. - _Peter Bala_, Oct 26 2008

%C From _Peter Bala_, Oct 13 2011: (Start)

%C The row polynomials count the elements of the hyperoctahedral group B_n (the group of signed permutations on n letters) according to the number of type B descents (see Chow and Gessel).

%C Let P denote Pascal's triangle. Then the first column of the array P*(I-t*P^2)^(-1) (I the identity array) begins [1/(1-t),(1+t)/(1-t)^2,(1+6*t+t^2)/(1-t)^3,...]. The numerator polynomials are the row polynomials of this table. Similarly, in the array (I-t*A062715)^-1, the numerator polynomials in the first column produce the row polynomials of this table (but with an extra factor of t). Cf. A145901. (End)

%C The Dasse-Hartaut and Hitczenko paper (section 6.1.4) shows this triangle of numbers, when suitably normalized, satisfies the central limit theorem. - _Peter Bala_, Mar 05 2012

%C These are the coefficients of the midpoint Eulerian polynomials (see Quade/Collatz and Schoenberg). In terms of the cardinal B-splines b_n(t) these polynomials can be defined as M_n(x) = 2^n*n!*Sum_{k=0..n} b_{n+1}(k+1/2)*x^k. - _Peter Luschny_, Apr 26 2013

%C The o.g.f. Godd(n, x) = Sum_{m>=0} Sodd(n, m)*x^m, with Sodd(n, m) = Sum_{j=0..m} (1+2*j)^n is Podd(n, x)/(1 - x)^(n+2) with Podd(n, x) = Sum_{k=0..n} T(n+1, k+1)*x^k. E.g., Godd(2, x) = (1 + 6*x + x^2)/(1 - x)^4; see A000447(n+1) for n >= 0. For the e.g.f.s see A282628. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Mar 17 2017

%C Let h_0(x,y) = x*y/(x+y), and D = x*D_x - y*D_y where D_x is the partial derivative w.r.t. x, etc. Put h_{n+1}(x,y) = D(h_n)(x,y). Then h_n(x,y) = x*y/(x+y)^(n+1)*f_{n}(x,y) where f_n(x,y) = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^k*T(n+1,k+1)*y^(n-k)*x^k. If instead of h_0, one similarly uses g_0(x,y) = x*y/(y-x), etc., then one obtains g_n(x,y) = x*y/(y-x)^(n+1)*Sum_{k=0..n} T(n+1,k+1)*y^(n-k)*x^k. (If instead of D one considers D' = x*D_x + y*D_y, then h_0 and g_0 are fixed points of D'.) - _Gregory Gerard Wojnar_, Oct 28 2018

%F T(s, 2) = 3^(s-1) - s. Sum_{t=1..s} T(s, t) = 2^(s-1)*(s-1)!.

%F From _Peter Bala_, Oct 26 2008: (Start)

%F T(n,k) = Sum_{i = 1..k} (-1)^(k-i)*binomial(n,k-i)*(2*i-1)^(n-1).

%F E.g.f.: (1 - x)*exp((1 - x)*t)/(1 - x*exp(2*(1 - x)*t)) = 1 + (1 + x)*t + (1 + 6*x + x^2)*t^2/2! + ... .

%F The row polynomials R(n,x) satisfy R(n,x)/(1 - x)^n = Sum_{i >= 1} (2*i - 1)^(n-1)*x^i. For example, row 3 gives (x + 6*x^2 + x^3)/ (1 - x)^3 = x + 3^2*x^2 + 5 ^2*x^3 + 7^2*x^4 + ... .

%F The recurrence relation R(n+1,x) = [(2*n+1)*x - 1]*R(n,x) + 2*x*(1 - x)*R'(n,x) shows that the row polynomials R(n,x) have only real zeros (apply Corollary 1.2 of [Liu and Wang]).

%F Worpitzky-type identity: Sum_{k = 1..n} T(n,k)*binomial(x+k-1,n-1) = (2*x+1)^(n-1).

%F The nonzero alternating row sums are (-1)^(n-1)*A002436(n). (End)

%F exp(x)*(d/dx)^n [exp(x)/(1 - exp(2*x))] = R(n+1,exp(2*x))/ (1 - exp(2*x))^(n+1).

%F Compare with Example 12.3.1. in [Boros and Moll]. - _Peter Bala_, Nov 07 2008

%F The n-th row polynomial R(n,x) = Sum_{k = 0..n} A145901(n,k)*x^k*(1 - x)^(n-k) = Sum_{k = 0..n} A145901(n,k)*(x - 1)^(n-k). - _Peter Bala_, Jul 22 2014

%F Assuming an offset 0, the n-th row polynomial = (x - 1)^n * log(x) * Integral_{u = 0..inf} (2*floor(u) + 1)^n * x^(-u) du, provided x > 1. - _Peter Bala_, Feb 06 2015

%F The finite sums of consecutive odd integer powers is derived from this number triangle: Sum_{k=1..n}(2k-1)^m = Sum_{j=1..m+1}binomial(n+m+1-j,m+1)*T(m+1,j). - _Tony Foster III_, Feb 09 2018
