COMMENTS

It seems that a(n) = A081064(n,4) = number of labeled acyclic directed graphs with n nodes and k = 4 arcs (see Rodionov (1992)). The reason is that we may label the graphs with the n objects and draw an arc from X towards Y if and only if X < Y. The 4 arcs of the directed graph correspond to the 4-set of binary order relationships and they are consistent because the directed graph is acyclic. - Petros Hadjicostas, Apr 10 2020

FORMULA

a(n) = binomial(n,4) * (n^4 + 2*n^3 - 5*n^2 - 22*n - 30). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Apr 11 2020

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Apr 11 2020: (Start)

G.f.: 2*x^4*(93 + 688*x + 18*x^2 + 48*x^3 - 7*x^4) / (1 - x)^9.

a(n) = 9*a(n-1) - 36*a(n-2) + 84*a(n-3) - 126*a(n-4) + 126*a(n-5) - 84*a(n-6) + 36*a(n-7) - 9*a(n-8) + a(n-9) for n>10.
