COMMENTS

a(n) is the dimension of the second Cartan power of sl(n, C), which is the irreducible representation of sl(n, C) the highest weight of which is twice that of the adjoint representation. - Daniel J. F. Fox, Jan 01 2006

Also the Harary index of the n X n rook graph. - Eric W. Weisstein, Jun 20 2017

a(n) is the dimension of the space of curvature tensors of Kähler type with vanishing Ricci trace on a Hermitian vector space of real dimension 2n. - Daniel J. F. Fox, Nov 21 2018

FORMULA

a(n) = n^2*(n^2+2*n-3)/4.

a(n) = A000096(n)*A000217(n-1).

a(n) = 4*A173963(n+1). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Mar 03 2010

G.f.: x^2*(5+2*x-x^2)/(1-x)^5. - Colin Barker, Mar 17 2012

EXAMPLE

a(3) = T(3)^2 - 3^2 = 6^2 - 9 = 36-9 = 27.
