COMMENTS

Row n has n+1 entries.

T(n,k) = n^2-4*k, n, k > = 0 read by antidiagonals. T(n,k) is discriminant the quadratic equation x^2+n*x+k=0. - Boris Putievskiy, Jan 11 2013

FORMULA

From Boris Putievskiy, Jan 11 2013: (Start)

a(n) = (A002260(n)-1)^2 - 4*(A004736(n)-1), n >0.

a(n) = (i-1)^2-4(j-1), n>0, where

i = n-t*(t+1)/2,

j = (t*t+3*t+4)/2-n,

t = floor((-1+sqrt(8*n-7))/2). (End)
