Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

If A is a random matrix in the compact group USp(6) (6 X 6 complex matrices which are unitary and symplectic), then a(n) = E[(tr(A^2))^n] is the n-th moment of the trace of A^2. See A138542 for central moments.

FORMULA

mgf is A(z) = det[F_{i+j-2}(z)], 1<=i,j<=g, where F_m(z) = Sum_j binomial(m,j)(B_{(2j-m)/2}(z)-B_{(2j-m+2)/2}(z)) and B_v(z)=0 for non-integer k and otherwise B_v(z)=I_v(2z) with I_v(z) is the hyperbolic Bessel function (of the first kind) of order v.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 24 because E[(tr(A^2))^4] = 24 for a random matrix A in USp(6).
