Index entries related to Gaussian binomial coefficients.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (26521,58611410,-9905328290,-128011801489,137858491849).

FORMULA

a(n) = product_{i=1..4} ((-13)^(n-i+1)-1)/((-13)^i-1). - M. F. Hasler, Nov 03 2012

G.f.: -x^4 / ( (x-1)*(169*x-1)*(2197*x+1)*(13*x+1)*(28561*x-1) ). - R. J. Mathar, Aug 03 2016

EXAMPLE

To illustrate the relation qC(n,r)=qC(n,n-r), here with r=4, n=r+1...r+3:

A015303(5) = 26521 = A015000(5),

A015303(6) = 761974851 = A015265(6),

A015303(7) = 21752862899691 = A015286(7).
