%F From _R. J. Mathar_, Aug 11 2009: (Start)

%F Empirical: a(n) = 8*a(n-1) -17*a(n-2) +10*a(n-3) +6*a(n-4) -14*a(n-5) +7*a(n-6) +6*a(n-7) -a(n-8).

%F Empirical g.f.: -x*(1+x)*(x^4-x^3+x^2+x-1)/ ((x^2+x-1)*(x^6-7*x^5+x^4+6*x^3-11*x^2+7*x-1)). (End)

%F The above empirical formulas are correct. - _Andrew Howroyd_, Jan 06 2023
