%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A187853/b187853.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..50</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = 50128*n^2 - 312688*n + 476944 for n>7.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Apr 26 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: 8*x^3*(666 + 4224*x + 5462*x^2 + 2616*x^3 + 237*x^4 - 419*x^5 - 217*x^6 - 37*x^7) / (1 - x)^3.

%F a(n) = 3*a(n-1) - 3*a(n-2) + a(n-3) for n>10.
