Sloane, Correspondence, 1985 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-10,10,-5,1). FORMULA a(n) = h(5,n) where h(n, m) = Sum_{j} (n!/f(j)) * Product_{k=1..n} h(k,m-1)^(j(k)) and the sum runs over all partitions j=(j(1),...,j(n)) of n and f(j) = Product_{k=1..n} j(k)! * (k!)^(j(k)). That is, j satisfies Sum_{k=1..n} k*j(k) = n [From Hogg & Huberman]. - Sean A. Irvine, Oct 11 2016 G.f.: x*(24*x^3+108*x^2+47*x+1)/(1-x)^5. - Alois P.
