Index entries for sequences related to factorial numbers

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (35,-259,225).

FORMULA

G.f.: 1/((1 - x)*(1 - 9*x)*(1 - 25*x)).

a(n) = (5^(2*n + 4) - 3^(2*n + 5) + 2)/384.

E.g.f.: sinh(x)^5/120 = Sum_{n>=0} a(n)*x^(2*n + 5)/(2*n + 5)!. - Vladimir Kruchinin, Sep 30 2012

a(n) = det(|v(i+3,j+2)|, 1 <= i,j <= n), where v(n,k) are central factorial numbers of the first kind with odd indices (A008956). - Mircea Merca, Apr 06 2013

a(0) = 1, a(1) = 35, a(2) = 966, a(n) = 35*a(n-1) -259*a(n-2) +225*a(n-3). - Harvey P. Dale, Feb 25 2015
