FORMULA Let F(n) be the Fibonacci number A000045(n). a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} (-1)^k F(k)^7. Closed form: a(n) = (-1)^n (F(7n+7) - F(7n))/3625 + 7(F(5n+1) - 2 F(5n+4))/1375 + (-1)^n 21 F(3n+1)/250 - 7 F(n+2)/25 + 139/638. Recurrence: a(n) + 20 a(n-1) - 294 a(n-2) - 819 a(n-3) + 2912 a(n-4) - 728 a(n-5) - 1365 a(n-6) + 252 a(n-7) + 22 a(n-8) - a(n-9) = 0. G.f.: A(x) = (-x - 20 x^2 + 166 x^3 + 318 x^4 - 166 x^5 - 20 x^6 + x^7)/(1 + 20 x - 294 x^2 - 819 x^3 + 2912 x^4 - 728 x^5 - 1365 x^6 + 252 x^7 + 22 x^8 - x^9) = -x*(1 + 20 x - 166 x^2 - 318 x^3 + 166 x^4 + 20 x^5 - x^6)/ ((1 - x)*(1 - x - x^2)*(1 + 4 x - x^2)*(1 - 11 x - x^2)*(1 + 29 x - x^2)).
