The easiest way to do this would be

>>> import numpy as np
>>> n = 2
>>> i, j = np.ogrid[1:6, 1:6]
>>> arr = i**n * j*5 - n
>>> print arr
array([[  3,   8,  13,  18,  23],
       [ 18,  38,  58,  78,  98],
       [ 43,  88, 133, 178, 223],
       [ 78, 158, 238, 318, 398],
       [123, 248, 373, 498, 623]])
