Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The closed form comes from taking the derivative of the closed form of A031972, for which each term of this sequence is a derivative. - Jonas Whidden, Oct 18 2011

a(n) = A062806(n) / n. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Nov 22 2014

LINKS

Reinhard Zumkeller, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..250

FORMULA

a(1)=1. For n>1, a(n) = ((n-1)*(n+1)*n^n - n^(n+1) + 1)/(n-1)^2. - Jonas Whidden, Oct 18 2011

EXAMPLE

a(2)=sum(m*2^(m-1),m=1..2)=1+2*2=5.

MAPLE

a := n->sum(m*n^(m-1), m=1..n);

MATHEMATICA

Join[{0}, Table[Sum[m*n^(m-1), {m, 0, n}], {n, 1, 30}]] (* G. C. Greubel, Oct 13 2018 *)

PROG

(Haskell)

a068475 n = sum $ zipWith (*) [1..n] $ iterate (* n) 1
