Greubel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Charles R Greathouse IV, Re: Super-birthdays, seqfan list, Jan 2011. FORMULA From Alexander R. Povolotsky, Jan 18 2011: (Start) G.f.: (5 + 6*x + 11*x^2 + 6*x^3)/((-1 + x)^2*(1 + x + x^2 + x^3)). a(n) = +1*a(n-1) + 1*a(n-4) - 1*a(n-5). (End) EXAMPLE A standard year has 365 = 350+14+1 = 1 (mod 7) days, and a leap year has 366 = 2 (mod 7) days. A super-birthday occurs when this sums up to a multiple of 7. For a birth in the year preceding a Feb 29: 2+1+1+1+2 = 7, after 5 years, 1+1+1 +2+1+1 = 7, 6 years later, i.e. age of 11, 1+2+1+1+1+2+1+1 +1+2+1 = 14, 11 years later: age of 22, 1+1+2+1+1+1 = 7, 6 years later, age of  28, and then the same cycles repeat.
