%N de Bruijn's S(4,n).

%C a(n) is divisible by (n+1). Prime p divides a(p-1). Prime p>2 divides all a(n) from a((p+1)/2) to a(p-1). - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Jul 05 2006

%F a(n) = Sum_{k=-n..+n} (-1)^k*C(2*n,n+k)^4. - _Benoit Cloitre_, Mar 02 2005

%F a(n) = (-1)^n * HypergeometricPFQ[ {-2n, -2n, -2n, -2n}, {1, 1, 1}, -1]. - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Jul 05 2006

%F E.g.f.: Sum(n>=0,I^n*x^n/n!^4) * Sum(n>=0,(-I)^n*x^n/n!^4) = Sum(n>=0,a(n)*x^(2*n)/n!^4) where I^2=-1. - _Paul D. Hanna_, Dec 21 2011

%F a(n) ~ 0.125 k^(8n+3)/(Pi*n)^(3/2) where k = 2 cos(Pi/8) = A179260. This formula is due to de Bruijn 1958. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Dec 28 2011

%F Recurrence: a(0) = 1, a(1) = 14, 4 * (n + 1) * (2*n + 1)^3 * (48*n^2 + 162*n + 137) * a(n) + (n + 2)^3 * (2*n + 3) * (48*n^2 + 66*n + 23) * a(n+2) = 2 * (4 * (n + 1)^2 * (2*n + 3)^2 * (408*n^2 + 969*n + 431) - (n + 1) * (2*n + 3) * (69*n + 31) + 57*n + 92) * a(n+1). - _Vladimir Reshetnikov_, Sep 26 2016
