%H Vincenzo Librandi, <a href="/A100156/b100156.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..5000</a>

%H <a href="/index/Rec#order_04">Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients</a>, signature (4, -6, 4, -1).

%F a(n) = (1/6)*(11*n^3 - 3*n^2 - 2*n).

%F From _Harvey P. Dale_, Sep 28 2011: (Start)

%F a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4); a(0)=1, a(1)=12, a(2)=44, a(3)=108.

%F G.f.: x*(2*x*(x+4)+1)/(x-1)^4. (End)

%F E.g.f.: x*(6 + 30*x + 11*x^2)*exp(x)/6. - _G. C. Greubel_, Oct 18 2018
