Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

EXAMPLE

3rd row (1, 9, 24, 20) with alternating signs = characteristic polynomial 3 X 3 matrix [3 1 1 / 1 3 1 / 1 1 3], x^3 - 9x^2 + 24x - 20.

CROSSREFS

Row sums are A006234: 1, 4, 15, 54, 189... Rightmost terms in each row = A001792: 1, 3, 8, 20, 48, 112, 256...(row sums of A103406, the analogous triangle with all 2's in the generating matrix.)

See A103247 for another version.
