FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = (1/20160)*n^8 - (1/5040)*n^7 - (1/480)*n^6 + (107/720)*n^5 - (1151/960)*n^4 + (278/45)*n^3 - (54427/5040)*n^2 + (5323/420)*n - 7 for n>1.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jul 30 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(4 - 26*x + 92*x^2 - 215*x^3 + 350*x^4 - 386*x^5 + 277*x^6 - 119*x^7 + 29*x^8 - 4*x^9) / (1 - x)^9.

a(n) = 9*a(n-1) - 36*a(n-2) + 84*a(n-3) - 126*a(n-4) + 126*a(n-5) - 84*a(n-6) + 36*a(n-7) - 9*a(n-8) + a(n-9) for n>10.

(End)
