B. Berselli, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,4,-1).

FORMULA

a(n)=n(n-1)+a(n-1), with a(1)=5.

a(n)=4*a(n-1)-6*a(n-2)+4*a(n-3)-a(n-4) = 5+n(n^2-1)/3 = 5+A007290(n+1). G.f.: x(5-13x+15x^2-5x^3)/(1-x)^4. [From R. J. Mathar, Feb 19 2009]
