 OFFSET 5,2 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. LINKS Milan Janjic, Two enumerative functions. M. Janjic, On a class of polynomials with integer coefficients, JIS 11 (2008) 08.5.2 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; CROSSREFS Cf. A008310, A053117.
