COMMENTS

The n-th row's sum equals the n-th Bernoulli number (with B_1 = -1/2).

Starting from B_0 = 1, the successive B n comes from the equations written with the triangle A074909

1*B_0 +2*B_1 = 0                   -->  B_1 = 0 -1/2

1*B_0 +3*B_1 +3*B_2 = 0            -->  B_2 = 0 -1/3 +1/2

1*B_0 +4*B_1 +6*B_2 +4*B_3 = 0     -->  B_3 = 0 -1/4 +1/2 -1/4,

from the terms at the left-hand side. See A159688.

Main diagonal: 1, -1/2, 1/2, -1/4, 0, 1/12, 0, -1/12, 0, 3/20, 0, -5/12, 0, 691/420,... . After the initial 1, the numerators are given by -A050925.
