FORMULA

a(n) = (2^(n+1))*(1/24)*(n^5 + 36 n^4 + 431 n^3 + 2088 n^2 + 3972 n + 2304) -1

G.f.: (320*x^5-1360*x^4+2400*x^3-2180*x^2+1012*x-191) / ((x-1)*(2*x-1)^6). [Colin Barker, Dec 10 2012]

EXAMPLE

a(3) = (2^(3+1))*(1/24)*(3^5 + 36 * 3^4 + 431 * 3^3 + 2088 * 3^2 + 3972 * 3 + 2304) - 1 = 31871. This is the number of chains in the power set lattice ( which is also the number of fuzzy subsets ) of X_(n+5).
