COMMENTS

The general formula for alternating sums of powers is in terms of the Swiss-Knife polynomials P(n,x) A153641 2^(-n-1)(P(n,1)-(-1)^k P(n,2k+1)). Thus a(k) = |2^(-6)(P(5,1)-(-1)^k P(5,2k+1))|. - Peter Luschny, Jul 12 2009

FORMULA

a(n) = (2*n^5 + 5*n^4 - 5*n^2 + 1 - (-1)^n)/4 = n^5 - a(n-1).

G.f.: x*(x^4 + 26*x^3 + 66*x^2 + 26*x + 1)/((x-1)^6*(x+1)). - Colin Barker, Sep 19 2012

a(0)=0, a(1)=1, a(2)=31, a(3)=212, a(4)=812, a(5)=2313, a(6)=5463, a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 9*a(n-2) + 5*a(n-3) + 5*a(n-4) - 9*a(n-5) + 5*a(n-6) - a(n-7). - Harvey P. Dale, Feb 01 2013
