COMMENTS

The n-th row of the triangle is the characteristic polynomial of n-th order, Z/nZ addition table considered as a matrix.

The determinant of n-th order matrix (irrespective of sign) is the rightmost term of n-th order polynomial.

EXAMPLE

Addition table Z/3Z = [0,1,2; 1,2,0; 2,0,1]. Considered as a matrix, the characteristic polynomial = x^3 - 3x^2 - 3x + 9.

First few characteristic polynomials are:

1;

x   + 0;

x^2 + 0x    - 1;

x^3 - 3x^2  - 3x    + 9;

x^4 - 4x^3  - 20x^2 + 32x      + 96;

x^5 - 10x^4 - 25x^3 + 250x^2   + 125x     - 1250;

x^6 - 12x^5 - 93x^4 + 576x^3   + 2592x^2  - 5194x     - 19440;

x^7 - 21x^6 - 98x^5 +   0x^4   + 2058x^3  - 50421x^2  - 16807x    + 352947;

x^8 - 24x^7 - 272x^6 + 3840x^5 + 24064x^4 - 147456x^3 - 753664x^2 + 1572864x + 7340032;
