 OFFSET 1,1 LINKS R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210 FORMULA Empirical: a(n) = n^8 + (41/35)*n^7 + (56/15)*n^6 + (22/5)*n^5 + (19/3)*n^4 + (17/5)*n^3 - (16/15)*n^2 + (36/35)*n. Conjectures from Colin Barker, Nov 10 2018: (Start) G.f.: 4*x*(5 + 183*x + 1506*x^2 + 3974*x^3 + 3441*x^4 + 903*x^5 + 68*x^6) / (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>8.
