R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 2*a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3) + 3*a(n-4) - a(n-5).

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jul 07 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(1 - 2*x^2 + 3*x^3 - x^4) / ((1 - x)^4*(1 + x)).

a(n) = (4*n^3 + 6*n^2 + 20*n + 48) / 48 for n even.

a(n) = (4*n^3 + 6*n^2 + 20*n + 18) / 48 for n odd.

(End)

EXAMPLE

Some solutions for n=6:

  -2  0 -3 -3 -1 -3 -2 -3 -2 -3 -1 -2 -1 -2 -1 -2

  -2  0  0 -2  1 -3  1 -1 -1  1 -1  1  0  0  0  2

   2  0  3  3 -1  3  0  3  2  3  1  1 -1  0  0  0

   2  0  0  2  1  3  1  1  1 -1  1  0  2  2  1  0
