COMMENTS

This comment covers a family of sequences which satisfy a recurrence of the form a(n) = a(n1) + a(nm), with a(n) = 1 for n = 0...m1. The generating function is 1/(1xx^m). Also a(n) = sum_{i=0..n/m} binomial(n(m1)*i, i). This family of binomial summations or recurrences gives the number of ways to cover (without overlapping) a linear lattice of n sites with molecules that are m sites wide. Special case: m=1: A000079; m=4: A003269; m=5: A003520; m=6: A005708; m=7: A005709; m=8: A005710.
For n>=6, a(n6) = number of compositions of n in which each part is >=6.  Milan Janjic, Jun 28 2010
Number of compositions of n into parts 1 and 6.  Joerg Arndt, Jun 24 2011
The compositions of n in which each natural number is colored by one of p different colors are called pcolored compositions of n. For n>=6, 2*a(n6) equals the number of 2colored compositions of n with all parts >=6, such that no adjacent parts have the same color.  Milan Janjic, Nov 27 2011
a(n+5) equals the number of binary words of length n having at least 5 zeros between every two successive ones.  Milan Janjic, Feb 07 2015

FORMULA

G.f.: 1/(1xx^6).  Simon Plouffe in his 1992 dissertation
a(n) = term (1,1) in the 6 X 6 matrix [1,1,0,0,0,0; 0,0,1,0,0,0; 0,0,0,1,0,0; 0,0,0,0,1,0; 0,0,0,0,0,1]; 1,0,0,0,0,0]^n.  Alois P. Heinz, Jul 27 2008
For positive integers n and k such that k <= n <= 6*k and 5 divides nk, define c(n,k) = binomial(k,(nk)/5), and c(n,k)=0, otherwise. Then, for n>= 1, a(n) = sum_{k=1..n} c(n,k).  Milan Janjic, Dec 09 2011
Apparently a(n) = hypergeometric([1/6n/6, 1/3n/6, 1/2n/6, 2/3n/6, 5/6n/6, n/6], [1/5n/5, 2/5n/5, 3/5 n/5, 4/5n/5, n/5], 6^6/5^5) for n>=25.  Peter Luschny, Sep 19 2014
