FORMULA

G.f.: x*(1+11*x+6*x^2)/(1-x)^4. a(n)=n*(3*n-1)*(2*n-1)/2.

For n>0, a(n) = n*A000567(n) - A000217(n-1). - Bruno Berselli, Apr 25 2010; Feb 01 2011

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4). - Vincenzo Librandi, Jun 18 2012

a(n) = -A094952(-n) for all n in Z. - Michael Somos, Jan 23 2014

EXAMPLE

G.f. = x + 15*x^2 + 60*x^3 + 154*x^4 + 315*x^5 + 561*x^6 + 910*x^7 + ...
