 OFFSET 0,3 LINKS Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (6, -15, 20, -15, 6, -1). FORMULA a(n) = (n^5 - n^3) / 2. a(n) = (A000584(n) - A000578(n)) / 2. a(n) = A000584(n) - A168178(n) = A168178(n) - A000578(n). G.f.: (Sum_{j=1..5} S2(5,j)*j!*x^j/(1-x)^(j+1) - Sum_{j=1..3} S2(3,j)*j!*x^j/(1-x)^(j+1)) / 2, where S2 is the Stirling subset number A008277. G.f.: x * Sum_{k=1..4} A145883(5,k) * x^k / (1-x)^6. E.g.f.: (Sum_{k=1..5} S2(5,k)*x^k - Sum_{k=1..3} S2(3,k)*x^k) * exp(x) / 2, where S2 is the Stirling subset number A008277. For n>5, a(n) = Sum_{j=1..6} -binomial(j-7,j) * a(n-j). EXAMPLE For a(0)=0 and  a(1)=0, there are no chiral rows using fewer than two colors. For a(2)=12, the chiral pairs are AAAAB-BAAAA, AAABA-ABAAA, AAABB-BBAAA, AABAB-BABAA, AABBA-ABBAA, AABBB-BBBAAA, ABAAB-BAABA, ABABB-BBABA, ABBAB-BABBA, ABBBB-BBBBA, BAABB-BBAAB, and BABBB-BBBAB.
