FORMULA

a(n) ~ 5^(5*n+1/2) / (4 * Pi^2 * n^2). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 07 2014

From Peter Bala, Jul 12 2016: (Start)

a(n) = binomial(2*n,n)*binomial(3*n,n)*binomial(4*n,n)*

binomial(5*n,n) = ( [x^n](1 + x)^(2*n) ) * ( [x^n](1 + x)^(3*n) ) * ( [x^n](1 + x)^(4*n) ) * ( [x^n](1 + x)^(5*n) ) = [x^n](F(x)^(120*n)), where F(x) = 1 + x + 353*x^2 + 318986*x^3 + 408941594*x^4 + 633438203535*x^5 + 1105336091531052*x^6 + ... appears to have integer coefficients. For similar results see A000897, A002894, A002897, A006480, A008977, A186420 and A188662. (End)

From Peter Bala, Jul 17 2016: (Start)

a(n) = Sum_{k = 0..4*n} (-1)^k*binomial(5*n,n + k)*binomial(n + k,k)^5.

a(n) = Sum_{k = 0..5*n} (-1)^(n+k)*binomial(5*n,k)*binomial(n + k,k)^5. (End)
