Wolfram, A New Kind of Science FORMULA Conjectures from Colin Barker, Mar 21 2016: (Start) a(n) = (9+3*(-1)^n+7*n-3*(-1)^n*n+18*n^2+2*n^3)/6 for n>0. a(n) = (n^3+9*n^2+2*n+6)/3 for n>0 and even. a(n) = (n^3+9*n^2+5*n+3)/3 for n odd. a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+a(n-2)-4*a(n-3)+a(n-4)+2*a(n-5)-a(n-6) for n>6. G.f.: (1+4*x+5*x^2+4*x^3-5*x^4-x^6) / ((1-x)^4*(1+x)^2).
