Given the symmetry T(n,k) = T(kn,k) in the upper triangle, rows and upper diagonals are identical.
The first row, which is also the main diagonal, is 1/2^k.
The second row is Oresme numbers k/2^k.
The third row is (k(k1)/2!)/2^k (see A069834).
The fourth row is (k(k1)(k2)/3!)/2^k.
The sum of any column is always 1.
The sum of the nth antidiagonal is A001045(n+1)/2^n; the numerators of these sums are the positive Jacobsthal numbers 1, 1, 3, 5, 11, 21, 43, 85, ... (see A001045).
It can also be observed that every row is an "autosequence", that is a sequence which is identical to its inverse binomial transform, except for signs.
