COMMENTS

This is the main sequence representing the degenerate case of sequences which equal their seventh difference, where besides the generic a(n)=7a(n-1)-21(n-2)+35a(n-3)-35a(n-4)+21a(n-5)-7a(n-6)+2a(n-7), cf. A135356, there is also a shorter recurrence.

After the first four terms, every seventh term is zero. - Harvey P. Dale, Sep 20 2012
