LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..44.

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1,1,-3,3,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = floor((1/n)(Sum_{i=1..n} i^3) = floor(n*(n+1)^2/4).

G.f.: x*(1+x+x^4+3*x^2) / ( (1+x)*(x^2+1)*(x-1)^4 ). - R. J. Mathar, Feb 20 2011

EXAMPLE

a(3) = floor((1 + 8 + 27)/3) = 12.

MAPLE

ZL:=n->sum(i^3, i=1..n): a:=n->floor(numer(ZL(n))/n): seq(a(n), n=1..44); # Zerinvary Lajos, Mar 28 2007

MATHEMATICA

s = 0; a = {}; For[i = 1, i <= 100, i++, s = s + i^3; a = Append[a, Floor[(1/i) s]]]; a
