 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS From Peter M. Chema, Jan 19 2017: (Start) Other representations include: n (n (n (n - 1) - 1) - 1). Real roots are 0 and 1/3 (1 + (19 - 3 sqrt(33))^(1/3) + (19 + 3 sqrt(33))^(1/3)). Conjecture: After the 9th term, digital root is period 9: repeat [9,7,2,6,1,2,3,4,2]. (End) From Chai Wah Wu, Mar 16 2017: (Start) a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2) + 10*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n > 4. G.f.: 2*x*(-x^3 - 6*x^2 - 6*x + 1)/(x - 1)^5.
