COMMENTS

Second derivative of the n-th Chebyshev polynomial (of the first kind) evaluated at x=1.

The second derivative at x=-1 is just (-1)^n * a(n).

The difference between two consecutive terms generates the sequence a(n+1)-a(n) = A002492(n).

Consider the partitions of 2n into two parts (p,q) where p <= q. Then a(n) is the total volume of the family of rectangular prisms with dimensions p, |q-p| and |q-p|. - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Apr 15 2018

FORMULA

a(n) = (n-1)*n^2*(n+1)/3 = 4*A002415(n).

a(n) = 2*( A000914(n-1) + C(n+1,4) ) - David Scambler, Nov 27 2006

a(n) = 5*a(n-1)-10*a(n-2)+10*a(n-3)-5*a(n-4)+a(n-5). G.f.: 4*x^2*(1+x)/(1-x)^5. - Colin Barker, Jan 26 2012

EXAMPLE

a(4)=80 because:

C_4(x) = 1 - 8x^2 + 8x^4

C'_4(x) = -16x+32x^3

C''_4(x) = -16+96x^2

C''_4(1) = -16+96 = 80
