COMMENTS
See A165817 for the case n indistinguishable balls into 2*n distinguishable boxes.
See A054688 for the case n indistinguishable balls into n^2 distinguishable boxes.
a(n) is the number of (weak) compositions of n into n^3 parts. - Joerg Arndt, Oct 04 2017

FORMULA
a(n) = binomial(n^3+n-1, n).
Let denote P(n) = the number of integer partitions of n,
p(i) = the number of parts of the i-th partition of n,
d(i) = the number of different parts of the i-th partition of n,
m(i,j) = multiplicity of the j-th part of the i-th partition of n.
Then one has:
a(n) = Sum_{i=1..P(n)} (n^3)!/((n^3-p(i))!*(Product_{j=1..d(i)} m(i,j)!)).
a(n) = [x^n] 1/(1 - x)^(n^3). - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Oct 03 2017
