FORMULA

G.f.: (3*x^52*x^4+x1)*x / (x^5+x1).
a(n) = 2*A017899(n5) for n>=5.


EXAMPLE

For n = 10 the a(10) = 2 permutations are (1,3,6,9,7,10,8,5,2,4), (1,4,2,5,8,10,7,9,6,3).


MAPLE

a:= n> `if` (n<2, n, (Matrix (5, (i, j)> `if` (ji=1 or i=5 and j in {1, 5}, 1, 0))^n. <<2, 2, (0$3)>>)[1, 1]): seq (a(n), n=1..60);
