Table of n, a(n) for n=3..43.

Eric Weisstein, Regular Polygon Division by Diagonals (MathWorld).

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-1,-5,5,1,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = 1/8*n*(n^3-11*n^2+43*n-58) for n even;

a(n) = 1/8*n*(n-3)*(n^2-8*n+19) for n odd.

a(n) = A176145(n) - A211379(n).

G.f.: x^4*(2*x^5-3*x^4-7*x^3-x^2-2*x-1) / ((x-1)^5*(x+1)^2). [Colin Barker, Feb 14 2013]

MAPLE

a:=n->piecewise(n mod 2 = 0, 1/8*n*(n^3-11*n^2+43*n-58), n mod 2 = 1, 1/8*n*(n-3)*(n^2-8*n+19), 0);
