 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Also the number of different strings of length n+3 obtained from "123...n" by iteratively duplicating any substring (see A137743 for comments and examples). This is the principal (although not simplest) definition of this sequence and explains why a(1)=1 and not 0. For n >= 3, sequence appears (not yet proved by induction) to give the number of multiplications between two nonzero matrix elements in calculating the product of two n X n Hessenberg matrices (square matrices which have 0's below the sub-diagonal, other elements being in general nonzero). - John M. Coffey, Jun 21 2016 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (4,-6,4,-1). FORMULA From Bruno Berselli, Aug 23 2011: (Start) G.f.: x*(1+4*x-5*x^2+x^4)/(1-x)^4. a(n) = +4*a(n-1) -6*a(n-2) +4*a(n-3) -a(n-4). a(-n-7) = -A000297(n).  (End) From Ilya Gutkovskiy, Jul 01 2016: (Start) E.g.f.: 4 + x + (-24 + 24*x + 12*x^2 + x^3)*exp(x)/6. Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = 1542/1225. (End) EXAMPLE a(5) = (5-1)*(5+4)*(5+6)/6 = 4*9*11/6 = 66. - Michael B.
