%N Monic integer version of Chebyshev T-polynomials (increasing powers).

%C The row polynomials R(n,x):=sum(a(n,m)*x^m),m=0..n) have been called Chebyshev C_n(x) polynomials in the Abramowitz-Stegun handbook, p. 778, 22.5.11

%C (see A049310 for the reference, and note that on p. 774 the S and C polynomials have been mixed up in older printings). [From W. Lang, Jun 03 2011]

%C This is a signed version of triangle A114525.

%C The unsigned column sequences (without zeros) are, for m=1..11: A005408, A000290, A000330, A002415, A005585, A040977, A050486, A053347, A054333, A054334, A057788.

%C The row polynomials R(n,x):= sum(a(n,m)*x*m,m=0..n), give for n=2,3,...,floor(N/2) the positive zeros of the Chebyshev S(N-1,x)-polynomial (see A049310) in terms of its largest zero rho(N):= 2*cos(Pi/N) by putting x=rho(N). The order of the positive zeros is falling: n=1 corresponds to the largest zero rho(N) and n=floor(N/2) to the smallest positive zero. Example N=5: rho(5)=phi (golden section), R(2,phi)= phi^2-2 = phi-1, the second largest (and smallest) positive zero of S(4,x). W. Lang, Dec 01 2010.

%C The row polynomial R(n,x), for n>=1, factorizes into minimal polynomials of 2*cos(pi/k), called C(k,x), with coefficients given in A187360, as follows.

%C R(n,x) = product(C(2*n/d,x),d|oddpart(n))

%C = product(C(2^{k+1}*d,x),d|oddpart(n)),

%C with oddpart(n)=A000265(n), and 2^k is the largest power of 2 dividing n, where k=0,1,2,...

%C (Proof: R and C are monic, the degree on both sides coincides, and the zeros of R(n,x) appear all on the r.h.s.). [From W. Lang, Jul 31 2011]

%C The zeros of the row polynomials R(n,x) are 2*cos(Pi*(2*k+1)/(2*n)), k=0,1, ..., n-1; n>=1 (from those of the Chebyshev T-polynomials). [From W. Lang, Sep 17 2011]

%C The discriminants of the row polynomials R(n,x) are found under A193678. [From W. Lang, Aug 27 2011]

%C The determinant of the NxN matrix M(N) with entries M(N;n,m) = R(m-1,x[n]), 1 <= n,m <= N, N>=1, and any x[n], is identical with twice the Vandermondian Det(V(N)) with matrix entries V(N;n,m) = x[n]^(m-1). This is an instance of the general theorem given in the Vein-Dale reference on p. 59. Note that R(0,x) = 2 (not 1). See also the comments from Aug 26 2013 under A049310 and from Aug 27 2013 under A000178. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Aug 27 2013

%C This triangle a(n,m) is also used to express in the regular (2*(n+1))-gon, inscribed in a circle of radius R, the length ratio side/R, called s(2*(n+1)), as a polynomial in rho(2*(n+1)), the length ratio (smallest diagonal)/side. See the bisections ((-1)^(k-s))*A111125(k,s) and A127677 for comments and examples. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Oct 05 2013

%F Recursion for n >= 2 and m>=2: a(n,m) = a(n-1,m-1)-a(n-2,m), a(n,m)=0 if n<m, a(2*k,1)=0, a(2*k+1,1)=(2*k+1)*(-1)^k. In addition, for column m=0: a(2*k,0)= 2*(-1)^k, a(2*k+1,0)=0, k>=0.

%F Chebyshev T(n,x) = sum(m=0..n, a(n,m)*(2^(m-1))*x^m ). [From W. Lang, Jun 03 2011]

%F R(n,x) = 2*T(n,x/2) = S(n,x) - S(n-2,x), n>=0, with Chebyshev's T- and S-polynomials, showing that they are integer and monic polynomials. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Nov 08 2011.
