COMMENTS

The antidiagonal sums 1, 4, 11, 25, 50, ... are the numbers A006522(n) for n>=3.

This is the accumulation array (Cf. A144112) of A144257 (which is the weight array of A086270). [Clark Kimberling, Sep 16 2008]

By rows, the sequence beginning (1, N,...) is the binomial transform of (1, (N-1), (N-2), 0, 0, 0,...); and is the second partial sum of (1, (N-2), (N-2), (N-2),...). Example: The sequence (1, 4, 9, 16, 25,...) is the binomial transform of (1, 3, 2, 0, 0, 0,...) and the second partial sum of (1, 2, 2, 2,...). - Gary W. Adamson, Aug 23 2015

FORMULA

T(n, k) = n*binomial(k, 2) + k = A057145(n+2,k).

2*T(n, k) = T(n+r, k) + T(n-r, k), where r = 0, 1, 2, 3, ..., n-1 (see table in Example field). [Bruno Berselli, Dec 19 2014]

2  |  1   4    9   16   25   36    49 ... (A000290, squares)

3  |  1   5   12   22   35   51    70 ... (A000326, pentagonal numbers)

4  |  1   6   15   28   45   66    91 ... (A000384, hexagonal numbers)

5  |  1   7   18   34   55   81   112 ... (A000566, heptagonal numbers)

6  |  1   8   21   40   65   96   133 ... (A000567, octagonal numbers)

The array formed by the complements: A183225.
