FORMULA
Explicit formula (Karl Fabel, 1966): a(n) = (n - 2)*(n + 5)*(n^4 - 3*n^3 - 8*n^2 + 66*n - 108)/6, for n >= 4.
G.f.: 4*x^2*(3*x^8-20*x^7+43*x^6-38*x^5+23*x^4-11*x^3-27*x^2-2*x-1)/(x-1)^7. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Mar 25 2010
From G. C. Greubel, Apr 18 2022: (Start)
a(n) = 7*a(n-1) -21*a(n-2) +35*a(n-3) -35*a(n-4) +21*a(n-5) -7*a(n-6) +a(n-7), for n >= 11.
E.g.f.: (1/6)*(-1080 - 312*x + 12*x^2 +13*x^3 + (1080 - 768*x + 228*x^2 + 38*x^4 + 15*x^5 + x^6)*exp(x)). (End)
