 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS a(n) is h^{(4)}_n, the complete homogeneous symmetric function of the four symbols s_j = 1 + 2*j, j = 0..3, of degree n >= 1, with h^{(4)}_0 = 1. See an example below. Thus it is the (dimensionless) volume of all multichoose(4, n) = binomial(n+3, 3) polytopes of dimension n with side lengths from the set {1, 3, 5, 7}. - Wolfdieter Lang, May 26 2017 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..200 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (16,-86,176,-105). FORMULA a(n) = (7^n- 3*5^n+ 3^(n+1)-1)/48. - Victor Adamchik (adamchik(AT)cs.cmu.edu), Jul 21 2001 a(n) = 12*a(n-1) - 35*a(n-2) + (3^n-1)/2 with a(0)=1, a(1)=16. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jul 09 2013 a(n) = 16*a(n-1) - 86*a(n-2) + 176*a(n-3) - 105*a(n-4), with a(0)=1, a(1)=16, a(2)=170, a(3)=1520. - Vincenzo Librandi, Jul 09 2013 G.f.: 1/((1-x)*(1-3*x)*(1-5*x)*(1-7*x)). See the name. E.g.f.: (343*exp(7*x) - 375*exp(5*x) + 81*exp(3*x) - exp(x))/48, from the e.g.f. of the fourth column (k=3) of A039755. - Wolfdieter Lang, May 26 2017 EXAMPLE a(2) = h^{(4)}_2 = (1^2 + 3^2 + 5^2 + 7^2) + (1^1*(3^1 + 5^1 + 7^1) + 3^1*(5^1 + 7^1) + 5^1*7^1) = 84 + 86 = 120. - Wolfdieter Lang, May 26 2017 MATHEMATICA Table[(7^n - 3*5^n + 3^(n + 1) - 1)/48, {n, 3, 60}] CoefficientList[Series[1 / ((1 - x) (1 - 3 x) (1 - 5 x) (1 - 7 x)), {x, 0, 20}], x] (* Vincenzo Librandi, Jul 09 2013 *) LinearRecurrence[{16, -86, 176, -105}, {1, 16, 170, 1520}, 30] (* Harvey P.
