COMMENTS

The n-th order Hilbert matrix has elements h(i,j) = 1/(i+j-1) for 1 <= i,j <=n. Only the lower triangular matrix is shown because the Hilbert matrix and its inverse are symmetric. The n-th row begins with n^2 and ends with A000515(n+1).

The sums of select rows of the inverse matrix are sequences A002457, A002736, A002738, A007531, and A054559.

The largest magnitude in the matrix is A210356(n). - T. D. Noe, Mar 28 2012

The sum of the elements of the n-th matrix is n^2. - T. D. Noe, Apr 02 2012

FORMULA

a(n,i,j) = (-1)^(i+j) (i+j-1) binomial(n+i-1, n-j) binomial(n+j-1, n-i) binomial(i+j-2, i-1)^2 is the (i,j) element of the inverse of the n-th Hilbert matrix.

EXAMPLE

Row 3 is 9, -36, 192, 30, -180, 180 which corresponds to the inverse

  9  -36   30

-36  192 -180

30 -180  180
