COMMENTS

Number of walks of length 4 between any two distinct vertices of the complete graph K_{n+1} (n >= 1). Example: a(2) = 5 because in the complete graph ABC we have the following walks of length 4 between A and B: ABACB, ABCAB, ACACB, ACBAB and ACBCB. - Emeric Deutsch, Apr 01 2004

1/a(n) for n >= 2, is in base n given by 0.repeat(0,0,1,1), due to (1/n^3 + 1/n^4)*(1/(1-1/n^4)) = 1/((n-1)*(n^2+1)). - Wolfdieter Lang, Jun 20 2014

For n>3, a(n) is 1220 in base n-1. - Bruno Berselli, Jan 26 2016

For odd n, a(n) * (n+1) / 2 + 1 also represents the first integer in a sum of n^4 consecutive integers that equals n^8. - Patrick J. McNab, Dec 26 2016

FORMULA

a(n) = round[n^4/(n+1)] for n > 2 = A062160(n, 4).

G.f.: (4*x-1)*(1+x^2)/(1-x)^4 (for the signed sequence). - Emeric Deutsch, Apr 01 2004

a(n) = floor(n^5/(n^2+n)) for n > 0. - Gary Detlefs, May 27 2010

a(n) = -A053698(-n). [Bruno Berselli, Jan 26 2016]

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 4^3 - 4^2 + 4 - 1 = 64 - 16 + 4 - 1 = 51.
