Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

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

Sum_{n>=2} = (-1)^n/a(n) = (Pi/3)*sech(Pi*sqrt(3)/2) + 4*log(2)/3 - 1. - Amiram Eldar, Jul 04 2020
