COMMENTS

a(n) is the number of ways to assign 4 different students to n different dorm rooms, each of which can hold at most 3 students. In other words, a(n) is the number of functions f:[4]->[n] with the size of the pre-image set of each element of the codomain at most 3. - Dennis P. Walsh, Mar 21 2013

a(n) are the values of m that yield integer solutions to this family of equations: x = sqrt(m + sqrt(x)), which may also be viewed as an infinitely recursive radical. The real solutions for x at each m = a(n) is n^2, except at n = 1 (m = 0) where x = 0 or 1 is a solution. - Richard R. Forberg, Oct 15 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = n*(n-1)*(n^2+n+1) = A000583(n) - n = A002061(n+1) * A002378(n-1) = (n-1) * A027444(n) = -n * A024001

a(n) = 2*A027482(n). - Zerinvary Lajos, Jan 28 2008

a(n) = floor(n^7/(n^3+1)). - Gary Detlefs, Feb 11 2010

a(n)^3 = (a(n)/n)^4 + (a(n)/n)^3. - Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 23 2012

a(n)^3 +A068601(n)^3 +A033562(n)^3 = A185065(n)^3, for n>0. - Vincenzo Librandi, Mar 13 2012

G.f.: 2*x^2*(7+4*x+x^2)/(1-x)^5. - Colin Barker, Apr 23 2012

a(n) = 14*C(n,2) + 36*C(n,3) + 24*C(n,4). - Dennis P. Walsh, Mar 21 2013
