COMMENTS

From M. F. Hasler, May 02 2009: (Start)

Also, 6th column of A159916, i.e., number of 6-element subsets of {1,...,n+6} whose elements add up to an odd integer.

Third differences are A002412([n/2]). (End)

F(1,6,n) is the number of bracelets with 1 blue, 6 identical red and n identical black beads. If F(1,6,1) = 4 and F(1,6,2) = 16 taken as a base, F(1,6,n) = n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3)(n+4)/120 + F(1,4,n) + F(1,6,n-2). F(1,4,n) is the number of bracelets with 1 blue, 4 identical red and n identical black beads. If F(1,4,1) = 3 and F(1,4,2) = 9 taken as a base; F(1,4,n) = n(n+1)(n+2)/6 + F(1,2,n) + F(1,4,n-2). F(1,2,n) is the number of bracelets with 1 blue, 2 identical red and n identical black beads. If F(1,2,1) = 2 and F(1,2,2) = 4 taken as a base F(1,2,n) = n + 1 + F(1,2,n-2). - Ata Aydin Uslu and Hamdi G. Ozmenekse, Mar 16 2012

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+3*x^2)/(1-x)^4/(1-x^2)^3. - N. J. A. Sloane

l(c, r) = 1/2 C(c+r-3, r) + 1/2 d(c, r), where d(c, r) is C((c + r - 3)/2, r/2) if c is odd and r is even, 0 if c is even and r is odd, C((c + r - 4)/2, r/2) if c is even and r is even, C((c + r - 4)/2, (r - 1)/2) if c is odd and r is odd.

a(2n) = (n+1)(n+2)(n+3)^2(4n^2+6n+5)/90, a(2n-1) = n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3)(4n^2+6n+5)/90. - M. F. Hasler, May 02 2009

a(n) = (1/(2*6!))*(n+2)*(n+4)*(n+6)*((n+1)*(n+3)*(n+5) + 1*3*5) - (1/2)*(1/2^4)*(n^2+7*n+11)*(1/2)*(1-(-1)^n). - Yosu Yurramendi, Jun 23 2013
