Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,26,-26,-1,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = a(n-1)+26*a(n-2)-26*a(n-3)-a(n-4)+a(n-5).

G.f.: x*(x^3+13*x^2-x-1) / ((x-1)*(x^4-26*x^2+1)).

EXAMPLE

15 is in the sequence because the 15th centered heptagonal number is 736, which is also the 16th octagonal number.

PROG

(PARI) Vec(x*(x^3+13*x^2-x-1)/((x-1)*(x^4-26*x^2+1)) + O(x^100))
