Table of n, a(n) for n=8..49.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,4,-1).

FORMULA

a(n)=1/6*(n-7)*(n^2+10*n-108)

Binomial transform of [6, 15, 10, 1, 0, 0, 0,...]. - Gary W. Adamson, Oct 22 2007

O.g.f.: -x^8*(-6+3*x+2*x^2)/(-1+x)^4. a(n+1)-a(n) = A051940(n+1) . a(n) = 4*a(n-1) -6*a(n-2) +4*a(n-3) -a(n-4)- R. J. Mathar, May 17 2008
