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

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
