%N Irregular triangular array of taxicab norms of Gaussian integers in array G generated as at Comments.

%C An array G of Gaussian integers is generated as follows: (row 1) = (0), and for n >=2, row n consists of the numbers x+1 and then i*x, where duplicates are deleted as they occur. Every Gaussian integer occurs exactly once in G. The taxicab norm of a Gaussian integer b+c*i is the taxicab distance (also known as Manhattan distance) from 0 to b+c*i, given by |b|+|c|. The norms of numbers in row n are given here in nondecreasing order. Conjecture: the number of numbers in row n is 4n-13 for n >= 5.

%e First 6 rows of G:

%e 0

%e 1

%e 2 .. i

%e 3 .. 2i .. i+1 ... -1

%e 4 .. 3i .. 1+2i .. -2 .. i+2 .. -1+i . -i

%e 5 .. 4i .. 1+3i .. -3 .. 2+2i . -2+i . -2i . i+3 . -1+2i . -1-i . 1-i

%e The corresponding taxicab norms follow:

%e 0

%e 1

%e 1 2

%e 1 2 2 3

%e 2 2 1 3 3 3 4

%e 3 3 2 3 2 4 2 4 4 4 5

%e Each row is then arranged in nondecreasing order:

%e 0

%e 1

%e 1 2

%e 1 2 2 3

%e 1 2 2 3 3 3 4

%e 2 2 2 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 5
