Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Row sums are (-1)^n*F(2n+2). Diagonal sums are (-1)^n*4^n. Inverse is A052179.

The positive matrix is (1/(1-4x+x^2), x/(1-4x+x^2)) with general term T(n,k) = if(k<=n, Gegenbauer_C(n-k,k+1,2),0).

For another version, see A124029.
