This is (-A128698)-reversed followed by A128698. LINKS G. C. Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..595 FORMULA Let F(n) be the Fibonacci number A000045(n) and let L(n) be the Lucas number A000032(n). a(n) = Sum_{k=1..n} (-1)^k F(k)^8. Closed form: a(n) = (-1)^n L(8n+4)/4375 - 2 L(6n+3)/625 + (-1)^n 28 L(4n+2)/1875 - 56 L(2n+1)/625 + (-1)^n 7/125. Factored closed form: a(n) = (-1)^n (1/21) F(n-2) F(n) F(n+1) F(n+3) (3 F(n)^2 F(n+1)^2 + 4). Recurrence: a(n) + 34 a(n-1) - 714 a(n-2) - 4641 a(n-3) + 12376 a(n-4) + 12376 a(n-5) - 4641 a(n-6) - 714 a(n-7) + 34 a(n-8) + a(n-9) = 0. G.f.: A(x) = (-x - 34 x^2 + 458 x^3 + 2242 x^4 + 458 x^5 - 34 x^6 - x^7)/(1 + 34 x - 714 x^2 - 4641 x^3 + 12376 x^4 + 12376 x^5 - 4641 x^6 - 714 x^7 + 34 x^8 + x^9) = -x(1 + 34 x - 458 x^2 - 2242 x^3 - 458 x^4 + 34 x^5 + x^6)/((1 + x)(1 - 3 x + x^2)(1 + 7 x + x^2)(1 - 18 x + x^2)(1 + 47 x + x^2)).
