 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Column 1 of A253424. LINKS R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210 FORMULA Empirical: a(n) = a(n-1) +4*a(n-4) -4*a(n-5) -6*a(n-8) +6*a(n-9) +4*a(n-12) -4*a(n-13) -a(n-16) +a(n-17) for n>21. Empirical for n mod 4 = 0: a(n) = (7/12)*n^4 + 9*n^3 + (563/12)*n^2 - (745/2)*n + 671 for n>4. Empirical for n mod 4 = 1: a(n) = (7/12)*n^4 + 9*n^3 + (479/12)*n^2 - (643/2)*n + 701 for n>4. Empirical for n mod 4 = 2: a(n) = (7/12)*n^4 + (20/3)*n^3 + (365/12)*n^2 - (1058/3)*n + 1214 for n>4. Empirical for n mod 4 = 3: a(n) = (7/12)*n^4 + (34/3)*n^3 + (509/12)*n^2 - (928/3)*n + 515 for n>4.
