Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..630

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-10,10,-5,1).

FORMULA

a(n) = -A123865(n) for n>0.

From G. C. Greubel, May 11 2017: (Start)

a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2) + 10*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4) + a(n-5).

G.f.: (1 - 5*x - 5*x^2 - 15*x^3)/(1 - x)^5.

E.g.f.: (1 - x - 7*x^2 - 6*x^3 - x^4)*exp(x). (End)

Sum_{k>=2} -1/a(k) = A256919 = 7/8 - Pi*coth(Pi)/4. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Dec 08 2020
