Table of n, a(n) for n=1..15.

FORMULA

a(n) = gamma(2 + n)^2*(Pi^2/6 - 1 - digamma^(1)(2 + n)), where gamma(x) is the gamma function and digamma^(n)(x) is the n-th derivative of the digamma function. - Markus Bindhammer, Nov 26 2017

EXAMPLE

Let esf abbreviate "elementary symmetric function". Then

0th esf of {4}:  1;

1st esf of {4,9}:  4 + 9 = 13;

2nd esf of {4,9,16}:  4*9 + 4*16 + 9*16 = 244.

MATHEMATICA

f[k_] := (k + 1)^2; t[n_] := Table[f[k], {k, 1, n}]

a[n_] := SymmetricPolynomial[n - 1, t[n]]

Table[a[n], {n, 1, 22}] (* A203156 *)
