COMMENTS
This triangle is #3 in an infinite set, where Pascal's triangle = #2. Generally, the infinite set is constrained by two properties: For triangle N, row sums are powers of N and upward sloping diagonals have roots equal to N + 2*cos(2*Pi/Q).
The triangle may be constructed by considering the rows of A152063 as upward sloping diagonals. - Gary W. Adamson, Nov 26 2008

FORMULA
Upward sloping diagonals are alternating (unsigned) characteristic polynomial coefficients of two forms of matrices: all 1's in the super and subdiagonals and (2,3,3,3,...) in the main diagonal and the other form all 1's in the super and subdiagonals and (3,3,3,...) in the main diagonal.
EXAMPLE
First few rows of the triangle are:
1;
1, 2;
1, 3, 5;
1, 5, 8, 13;
1, 6, 19, 21, 34;
1, 8, 25, 65, 55, 89;
1, 9, 42, 90, 210, 144, 233;
...
For example, the upward-sloping diagonal (1, 8, 19, 13) is derived from x^3 - 8x^2 + 19x - 13, characteristic polynomial of the 3 X 3 matrix [2, 1, 0; 1, 3, 1;, 0, 1, 3], having an eigenvalue of 3 + 2*cos(2*Pi/7). The next upward-sloping diagonal is (1, 9, 25, 21), derived from the characteristic polynomial x^3 - 9x^2 + 25x - 21 and the matrix [3, 1, 0; 1, 3, 1; 0, 1, 3]. An eigenvalue of this matrix and a root of the corresponding characteristic polynomial is 4.414213562... = 3 + 2*cos(2*Pi/8).
