COMMENTS

Also, number of 4-element subsets of the set {1,...,n-1} whose elements sum up to an odd integer, i.e., 4-th column of the triangle A159916, cf. there. - M. F. Hasler, May 01 2009

Also, if the offset is changed to 3, so that a(3)=2, a(n) = number of non-equivalent (mod D_3) ways to place 2 indistinguishable points on a triangular grid of side n so that they are not adjacent. - Heinrich Ludwig, Mar 23 2014

FORMULA

"BHK[ 5 ]" (reversible, identity, unlabeled, 5 parts) transform of 1, 1, 1, 1...

From M. F. Hasler, May 01 2009: (Start)

G.f.: 2 x^5 (1-x)^-5 (1+x)^-2.

a(n) = [(n-5)(n-3)(n-1)^2 + (6n-15) X[2Z](n)]/48, where X[2Z] is the characteristic function of 2Z. (End)

PROG

From M. F. Hasler, May 01 2009: (Start)

(PARI) A032091(n)=polcoeff(2/(1-x)^5/(1+x)^2+O(x^(n-5)), n-6)

A032091(n)=((n-5)*(n-3)*(n-1)^2+if(n%2==0, 6*n-15))/48 \\\\ (End)

CROSSREFS

a(n+6) = 2*A002624(n), A239572.
