COMMENTS
Equivalently, (lower left) triangle M^2 = transpose(T)^2. The following description refers to the lower triangular version, but OEIS's "TABL" link displays the values more appropriately as an upper right triangle. - M. F. Hasler, Apr 18 2009
For n rows, use matrices in each row from the sequence 1, -3, 5, -7, ... (filling in with zeros except for the n-th row). Let the matrix = M, then square and delete the zeros. For example, the 3-row generator would be [1 0 0 / 1 -3 0 / 1 -3 5] = M. The nonzero elements of M^2 give the first 6 terms of the sequence.

FORMULA
Diagonal elements are the odd squares: a(k(k+1)/2)=(2k+1)^2. First element in row k is (-1)^k*k. - M. F. Hasler, Apr 18 2009
EXAMPLE
The matrix
[ 1 0 0 0 ...]
[ 1 -3 0 0 ...]
[ 1 -3 5 0 ...]
[ 1 -3 5 -7 ...]
squared yields
[ +1 0 0 0 ...]
[ -2 +9 0 0 ...]
[ +3 -6 25 0 ...]
[ -4 15 -10 49 ...]; the lower left triangle gives this sequence: 1; -2, 9; 3, -6, 25; ...
