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

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = 4*a(n-1) -6*a(n-2) +4*a(n-3) +5*a(n-4) -4*a(n-5) +6*a(n-6) +4*a(n-7) +2*a(n-9) +a(n-10).

Empirical: G.f.: -x*(x^3+x^2+2) *(x^6+2*x^5+x^4+4*x^3+4*x^2+2) / ( (x^5+3*x^2-2*x+1) *(x^5+2*x^4+x^2+2*x-1) ). - R. J. Mathar, May 17 2014
