COMMENTS

Number of compositions (ordered partitions) of n into parts 2, 3, 6, and 7. - Joerg Arndt, Aug 13 2013

The sequence holds only when considering number of points scored and not HOW those points are scored.  Sequence A237997 applies when taking into account the two ways to score 2 points (safety; two-point conversion following a touchdown). - Bob Selcoe, Feb 16 2014

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..40.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,1,1,0,0,1,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: 1 / ( (1+x+x^2)*(1-x^5+x^3-x^2-x) ).

a(n)+a(n+1)+a(n+2) = A107293(n+6). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 18 2014

EXAMPLE

There are four ways to get a total of 7 points: (a) touchdown and extra point, (b) a field goal followed by two safeties, (c) a safety, field goal, and safety, and (d) two safeties followed by a field goal.

PROG

(PARI) lista(nn) = {x = xx + O(xx^nn); Vec(1/(1-x^2-x^3-x^6-x^7)); } \\ Michel Marcus, Aug 13 2013
