Annual Appeal: Today, Nov 11 2014, is the 4th anniversary of the launch of the new OEIS web site. 70,000 sequences have been added in these four years, all edited by volunteers. Please make a donation (tax deductible in the US) to help keep the OEIS running.

COMMENTS

If U_n(x), T_n(x) are Chebyshev's polynomials then U_n(x)=P_{n,0}(x), T_n(x)=P_{n,1}(x).

Let n>=5 and k be of the same parity. Consider a set X consisting of (n+k)/2-5 blocks of the size 2 and an additional block of the size 5, then (-1)^((n-k)/2)a(n,k) is the number of n-5-subsets of X intersecting each block of the size 2.

FORMULA

If n>=5 and k are of the same parity then a(n,k)= (-1)^((n-k)/2)*sum((-1)^i*binomial((n+k)/2-5, i)*binomial(n+k-5-2*i, n-5), i=0..(n+k)/2-5) and a(n,k)=0 if n and k are of different parity.

EXAMPLE

Rows are (1),(-5,2),(10,-11,4),... since P_{5,5}=x^5, P_{6,5}=-5x^4+2x^6, P_{7,5}=10x^3-11x^5+4x^7,...

MAPLE

if modp(n-k, 2)=0 then a[n, k]:=(-1)^((n-k)/2)*sum((-1)^i*binomial((n+k)/2-5, i)*binomial(n+k-5-2*i, n-5), i=0..(n+k)/2-5); end if;
