COMMENTS

Row n has floor(n/2) terms. Row sums are the factorial numbers (A000142). T(n,1) = A129535(n). Sum(T(n,k), k>=2) = A002464(n). If, in the definition, min is replaced by max, then one obtains A064482.

EXAMPLE

T(4,2) = 2 because we have 3142 and 2413.

Triangle starts:

     2;

     6;

    22,   2;

   106,  14;

   630,  88,  2;

  4394, 614, 32;
