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

FORMULA

a(n) = sum_{i=(2-n)*(n+1)/2..n} i = (-n^4 + 2*n^3 + 5*n^2 + 2*n)/8. - Theresa Guinard, Nov 15 2013

a(n) = A000330(n) - A000914(n-1). - J. M. Bergot, May 27 2017

From Colin Barker, May 27 2017: (Start)

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

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

(End)

EXAMPLE

The r-th term of the n-th row of the following array contains the sum of r successively decreasing integers beginning from n. 0<r<=n.

e.g. the row corresponding to 4 contains

4, (3+2),{(1) +(0)+(-1)}, {(-2)+(-3)+(-4)+(-5)} ----> 4,5,0,-14

2 1

3 3 -3

4 5 0 -14

5 7 3 -10 -35

6 9 6 -6 -30 -69

...

Sequence contains the row sums.
