%N Array: row n shows the coefficients of the characteristic polynomial of the n-th principal submatrix of {(i+j)*min(i,j)} (A203990).

%C Let p(n)=p(n,x) be the characteristic polynomial of the n-th principal submatrix. The zeros of p(n) are real, and they interlace the zeros of p(n+1). See A202605 for a guide to related sequences.

%D (For references regarding interlacing roots, see A202605.)
