COMMENTS

a(n) = Phi_10(n), where Phi_k is the k-th cyclotomic polynomial.

Number of walks of length 5 between any two distinct nodes of the complete graph K_{n+1} (n>=1). Example: a(1)=1 because in the complete graph AB we have only one walk of length 5 between A and B: ABABAB. - Emeric Deutsch, Apr 01 2004

FORMULA

G.f.=(1-4x+16x^2+6x^3+5x^4)/(1-x)^5. - Emeric Deutsch, Apr 01 2004

t^4-t^3+t^2-t+1 is the Alexander polynomial (with negative powers cleared) of the cinquefoil knot (torus knot T(5,2)). The associated Seifert matrix S is [[ -1, -1, 0, -1], [ 0, -1, 0, 0], [ -1, -1, -1, -1], [ 0, -1, 0, -1]]. a(n) = det(transpose(S)-n*S). Cf. A084849. - Peter Bala, Mar 14 2012
