EXAMPLE

(n-1)-st elementary symmetric function of {2,4,6,8,...,2n}.

Let esf abbreviate "elementary symmetric function".  Then

0th esf of {2}:  1

1st esf of {2,4}: 2+4=6

2nd esf of {2,4,6}: 2*4+2*6+4*6=44

MATHEMATICA

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

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