This can be regarded as a tabf sequence in two different ways. One has 
one row per rectangular array, so nth row has (n+1)*Part(n) elements.

The other way is with one row of a table counting as a row of the 
sequence. Thus this produces row lengths of 1, 2, 3,3, 4,4,4, 
5,5,5,5,5, ....

Part of the problem with presenting this sequence is that it is an 
sequence of rectangular arrays, not of integers.

The j'th array in the triangle has j+1 columns and partitions(j) rows.

Each row of the j'th section corresponds to a partition of j and 
answers the
following question:

How many ways may 0<=k<=j indistinguishable balls be dropped into a set 
of urns
whose maximum capacities
are determined by the parts of a partition of j?

e.g. j = 3

Urns   k= 0 1 2 3
========  =======
(3)       1 1 1 1
(2)(1)    1 2 2 1
(1)(1)(1) 1 3 3 1
