COMMENTS

The triangle's nth row is also related to recurrences for sequences f(n) which pth differences, p=n+2: The denominator of the generating function contains a factor 12x in these cases.
This factor may be "lifted" either by looking at auxiliary sequences f(n+1)2f(n) or by considering the corresponding "degenerate" shorter recurrences right away. In the case p=4, the recurrence is f(n)=4f(n1)6f(n2)+4f(n3) from the 4th row in A135356, the denominator in the g.f. is 14x+6x^24x^3=(12x)(12x+2x^2), which yields the degenerate recurrence f(n)=2f(n1)2f(n2) from the 2nd factor and leaves the first three coefficients of 1/(12x+2x^2)=1+2x+2x^2+.. in row 2.
A000749 is an example which follows the recurrence but not the degenerate recurrence, but still A000749(n+1)2A000749(n) = 0, 0, 1, 2, 2,.. starts with the 3 coefficients. A009545 follows both recurrences and starts with the three nonzero terms because there is only a power of x in the numerator of the g.f.
In the case p=5, the recurrence is f(n)=5f(n1)10f(n2)+10f(n3)5f(n4)+2f(n5), the denominator in the g.f. is 15x+10x^210x^3+5x^42x^5= (12x)(13x+4x^22x^3+x^4), where 1/(13x+4x^22x^3+x^4) = 1+3x+5x^2+5x^3+... and the 4 coefficients populate row 3.
A049016 obeys the main recurrence but not the degenerate recurrence f(n)=3f(n1)4f(n2)+2f(n3)f(n4), yet A049016(n+1)2A049016(n)=1, 3, 5, 5,.. starts with the 4 coefficients. A138112 obeys both recurrences and is constructed to start with the 4 coefficients themselves.
In the nomenclature of Foata and Han, this is the doubloon polynomial triangle d_{n,m}(0), up to index shifts.  R. J. Mathar, Jan 27 2011
