COMMENTS

Subsequence of primes begins 71, 547, 5741, 114031, 244861, 465011, 808081, 1037681. Subsequence of powers includes 537824 = 2^5 * 7^5.

The sequence is a quasipolynomial, so under the Bunyakovsky conjecture there are infinitely many primes in this sequence. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Aug 21 2011

Let s(0) = 0 and s(n) = A186707(n-1) for n > 0. Then s(n) is the number of 4-tuples (w,x,y,z) having all terms in {1, ..., n} and |w - x| < w + |y - z|. - Clark Kimberling, May 24 2012

FORMULA

From R. J. Mathar, Mar 24 2011: (Start)

a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 5*a(n-2) + 5*a(n-4) - 4*a(n-5) + a(n-6) = 7*n*(n^3/8 + n^2/2 + 3*n/4 + 1/2) + (15 + (-1)^n)/16.

G.f.: ( -1 - 10*x - 20*x^2 - 10*x^3 - x^4 ) / ( (1 + x)*(x - 1)^5 ). (End)

E.g.f.: (cosh(x) + 7*exp(x)*(1 + 15*x + 25*x^2 + 10*x^3 + x^4))/8. - Franck Maminirina Ramaharo, Nov 09 2018
