COMMENTS

Pentatope number Ptop(n) = binomial coefficient binomial(n,4) = n*(n+1)*(n+2)*(n+3)/24. Hyun Kwang Kim asserts that every positive integer can be represented as the sum of no more than 8 pentatope numbers; but in this sequence we are only concerned with sums of nonzero distinct pentatope numbers.

FORMULA

a(n) = Ptop(e) + Ptop(f) + Ptop(g) + Ptop(h) + Ptop(i) + Ptop(j) + Ptop(k) for some positive e=/=f=/=g=/=h=/=i=/=j=/=k and Ptop(n) = binomial coefficient binomial(n, 4).
