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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The n X n circulant matrix used here has first row 1 through n and each successive row is a circular rotation of the previous row to the right by one element.

The coefficient of x^(n-5) exists only for n>4, so the sequence starts with a(5). In order to obtain a nonnegative sequence the coefficient (which is negative for all n>4) is multiplied by -1.

FORMULA

a(n+4) = n*(n+1)*(n+2)*(n+3)*(n+4)^5*(4*n+32)/(2*6!) for n>=1.

a(n) = (4*n^10-24*n^9-20*n^8+360*n^7-704*n^6+384*n^5)/(2*6!) for n>=5.

G.f.: x^5*(x^5+53*x^4-82*x^3-2882*x^2-5295*x-1875)/(x-1)^11. [Colin Barker, May 29 2012]

EXAMPLE

The circulant matrix for n = 5 is

[1 2 3 4 5]

[5 1 2 3 4]

[4 5 1 2 3]

[3 4 5 1 2]

[2 3 4 5 1]

The characteristic polynomial of this matrix is x^5 - 5*x^4 -100*x^3 - 625*x^2 - 1750*x - 1875. The coefficient of x^(n-5) is -1875, hence a(5) = 1875.
