COMMENTS

Number of proper n-colorings of the 4-cycle with one vertex color fixed (offset 2). - Michael Somos, Jul 19 2002

n such that x^3 + x^2 + x + n factors over the integers. - James R. Buddenhagen, Apr 19 2005

If Y is a 4-subset of an n-set X then, for n>=5, a(n-5) is the number of 5-subsets of X having at least two elements in common with Y. - Milan Janjic, Dec 08 2007

Equals row sums of the Connell (A001614) sequence read as a triangle. - Gary W. Adamson, Sep 01 2008

FORMULA

a(n) = (n + 1)*(n^2 + n + 1).

a(n) = (n+1)^3-2*T(n) where T(n) =n*(n+1)/2= A000217(n) is the n-th triangular number. - Herman Jamke (hermanjamke(AT)fastmail.fm), Sep 14 2006

a(n) = n^8 mod (n^3+n), with offset 1..a(1)=1. - Gary Detlefs, May 02 2010

a(n) = 4*a(n-1)-6*a(n-2)+ 4*a(n-3)- a(n-4), n>3. - Harvey P. Dale, Jul 11 2011

G.f.: (1+2*x+3*x^2)/(1-x)^4. - Harvey P. Dale, Jul 11 2011

For n>0 a(n) = Sum_{k=A000217(n-1)...A000217(n+1)} k. - J. M. Bergot, Feb 11 2015

E.g.f.: (1 + 5*x + 5*x^2 + x^3)*exp(x). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 11 2016

EXAMPLE

For 2-colorings only 1212 is proper so a(2-2)=1. The proper 3-colorings are: 1212,1313,1213,1312,1232,1323 so a(3-2)=6.

a(0) = 1*1 = 1;

a(1) = 1*1 + 5*1 = 6;

a(2) = 1*1 + 5*2 + 10*1 = 21;

a(3) = 1*1 + 5*3 + 10*3 + 6*1 = 52;

a(4) = 1*1 + 5*4 + 10*6 + 6*4 = 105; etc. - Philippe Deléham, Mar 17 2014
