Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

FORMULA

G.f.: (2x^4-2x^6-x^7)/(1-x-x^2)^3.

a(n)=3a(n-1)-5a(n-3)+3a(n-5)+a(n-6) for n>=8.

EXAMPLE

The first 6 nu polynomials are nu(0)=1, nu(1)=1, nu(2)=2, nu(3)=3+q, nu(4)=5+3q+2q^2, nu(5)=8+7q+6q^2+4q^3+q^4, so the coefficients of q^2 are 0,0,0,0,2,6.

MATHEMATICA

b=1; lambda=1; expon=2; nu[0]=1; nu[1]=b; nu[n_] := nu[n]=Together[b*nu[n-1]+lambda(1-q^(n-1))/(1-q)nu[n-2]]; a[n_] := Coefficient[nu[n], q, expon]

CROSSREFS

Coefficients of q^0, q^1 and q^3 are in A000045, A023610 and A074083. Related sequences with different values of b and lambda are in A074084-A074089.

Sequence in context: A026540 A128232 A099099 * A212383 A097813 A167821

Adjacent sequences:  A074079 A074080 A074081 * A074083 A074084 A074085
