Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1,1,-3,3,-1).

FORMULA

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} round(k^2/8).

a(n) = round((2*n^3+3*n^2+4*n)/48).

a(n) = round((2*n+1)*(2*n^2+2*n+3)/96).

a(n) = floor((n+2)*(2*n^2-n+6)/48).

a(n) = ceiling((2*n^3+3*n^2+4*n-9)/48).

a(n) = a(n-4)+n*(n-3)/2+2, n>3.

G.f.: x^2*(1-x+x^2) / ( (1+x)*(x^2+1)*(x-1)^4 ). - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2010

a(n) = 3*(-1)^n/32+n^2/16+n/12+n^3/24+1/32-A057077(n)/8. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 26 2010

EXAMPLE

a(5) = round(1/8) + round(4/8) + round(9/8) + round(16/8) + round(25/8) = 0 + 1 + 1 + 2 + 3 = 7.
