Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of positive terms in the expansion of (a_1 + a_2 + a_3 + a_4 + a_5 + a_6 + a_7 - z)^n. Also the convolution of A001769 and A000012; A001753 and A001477; A001752 and A000217; A002623 and A000292; A002620 and A000332; A004526 and A000389. - Sergio Falcon (sfalcon(AT)dma.ulpgc.es), Feb 13 2007
