FORMULA

Legendre polynomial LP_4(x) = (35*x^4-30*x^2+3)/8. - Klaus Brockhaus, Nov 21 2009

From Klaus Brockhaus, Nov 21 2009: (Start)

a(n) = 560*n^4-120*n^2+3.

a(n) = 4*a(n-1)-6*a(n-2)+4*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+13440 for n > 3; a(0)=3, a(1)=443, a(2)=8483, a(3)=44283.

G.f.: (3+428*x+6298*x^2+6268*x^3+443*x^4)/(1-x)^5. (End)
