COMMENTS

We consider n points in the plane, {A1, A2, ..., An}, n > = 4, lying on a line; a(n) is the number of points of intersections of the circles with diameters AiAj (i<>j).

We consider n aligned points of the plane {A1, A2, ..., An}, n > = 4. The sequence a(n) is the number of points of intersections of the circles with diameters AiAj (i<>j). - Michel Lagneau, May 04 2010

FORMULA

a(n) = (n^4 + 10n^3 + 35n^2 + 62n + 12)/12. - Gary Detlefs, Jun 06 2010

G.f.: -(3*x^4-13*x^3+21*x^2-15*x+6) / (x-1)^5. - Colin Barker, Dec 20 2012

EXAMPLE

For n = 5, we obtain 2*5 + 5 = 15 intersections.

From Michel Lagneau, May 04 2010: (Start)

For n = 4, we obtain 2*1 + 4 = 6 intersections (including tangential circles);

For n = 5, we obtain 2*5 + 5 = 15 intersections (including tangential circles). (End)
