FORMULA

Form an array of the arithmetic sequences: (1, 2, 3, ...); (1, 3, 5, ...); (1, 4, 7, ...); and consider each pair as a complex term; e.g., (1 + 2i), (2 + 3i), then square each complex term and extract the real integer. Antidiagonals become rows of the triangle.

EXAMPLE

Array of the extracted real terms:

   -3,  -5,  -7,   -9, ...

   -8, -16, -24,  -32, ...

  -15, -33, -51,  -69, ...

  -24, -56, -88, -120, ...

  ...

Taking antidiagonals we get the triangle:

   -3;

   -8,  -5;

  -15, -16,  -7;

  -24, -33, -24,  -9;

  -35, -56, -51, -32, -11;

  -48, -85, -88, -69, -40, -13;

  ...

(3,2) = -16 since (taken from the arithmetic sequence 1, 3, 5, ...), (3 + 5i)^2 = (-16 + 30i).
