COMMENTS

For n>5: a(n) = A173333(n,n-5). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Feb 19 2010

Appears in Harriot along with the formula (for a different offset) a(n) = n^5 + 10n^4 + 35n^3 + 50n^2 + 24n, see links. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Oct 22 2014

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (6,-15,20,-15,6,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = n*(n-1)*(n-2)*(n-3)*(n-4)=n!/(n-5)!.

E.g.f.: x^5*exp(x).

Recurrence: {a(1)=0, a(2)=0, a(4)=0, a(3)=0, (-1-n)*a(n)+(-4+n)*a(n+1), a(5)=120}.

O.g.f.: 120*x^5/(-1+x)^6. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 16 2007

a(n) = a(n-1) + 5*A052762(n). - J. M. Bergot, May 30 2012

MAPLE

spec := [S, {B=Set(Z), S=Prod(Z, Z, Z, Z, Z, B)}, labeled]: seq(combstruct[count](spec, size=n), n=0..20);

G(x):=x^5*exp(x): f[0]:=G(x): for n from 1 to 31 do f[n]:=diff(f[n-1], x) od: x:=0: seq(f[n], n=0..31); # Zerinvary Lajos, Apr 05 2009
