COMMENTS

For order v, the number of blocks is v*(v-1)*(v-2)/24.

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

FORMULA

a(n) = (n*(1+3*n)*(1+3*(-1)^n+6*n))/16.

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

G.f.: x*(x^5+4*x^4+22*x^3+13*x^2+13*x+1) / ((x-1)^4*(x+1)^3).

EXAMPLE

For n=3, A047235(n+1)=10 and the number of blocks in SQS(10) is 30.
