COMMENTS

Obeys also the recurrence a(n)=5a(n-1)-10a(n-2)+10a(n-3)-5a(n-4)+2a(n-5), so the sequence is identical to its fifth differences (cf. A135356). a(n) = A138110(0,n): if A138110 is interpreted as an array with five rows, this is the top row.

The first differences are represented by A100334(n-1).

The 2nd differences are represented by A103311(n).

The 3rd differences are essentially represented by -A138003(n-2).

The 4th differences are represented by -A105371(n).

A102312 contains the absolute values of the terms which occur in pairs, for example a(5)=a(6)=5=A102312(1), a(10)=a(11)= -55 = -A102312(2).

Inverse BINOMIAL transform yields two zeros followed by A105384. - R. J. Mathar, Jul 04 2008
