```Another characterization of A255483 <http://oeis.org/A255483> is the
following:
The first column is A123098: multiplicative encoding of Pascal's triangle
mod 2 (e.g. n=2 => 1 0 1 => 2^1 * 3^0 * 5^1),
and subsequent columns are obtained by applying the function A003961, i.e.,
replacing each prime factor by the next larger prime. (Equivalently, the
n-th line of the binary Pascal triangle is shifted by inserting an initial
0.)
This also shows that the sequence is injective and with squarefree terms,
and allows to compute any term directly via the corresponding binomial
coefficients in Z_2.
