FORMULA

Explicit formula: a(n) = 1/120*n^2*(n^8 -10*n^6 -240*n^5 +995*n^4 +640*n^3 +1870*n^2 -41680*n +69624) + 2*n^2*(n-3)*(2n+1)*(-1)^n, n>6.

G.f.: 2*x^4*(144*x^18 -874*x^17 +1356*x^16 +2195*x^15 -8778*x^14 +4282*x^13 +16170*x^12 -23696*x^11 -5686*x^10 +36079*x^9 -33008*x^8 -33909*x^7 -13310*x^6 -61448*x^5 -197358*x^4 -109070*x^3 -50114*x^2 -6327*x -488)/((x-1)^11*(x+1)^5).
