 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Row 4 of A188553. From Miquel A. Fiol, Feb 06 2024: (Start) a(n) is the number of words of length n, x(1)x(2)...x(n), on the alphabet {0,1,...4}, such that, for i=2,...,n, x(i)=either x(i-1) or x(i-1)-1. For the bijection between arrays and words, notice that the i-th column consists of 1's and then 0's, and there are x(i)=0 to 4 of 1's. The number of such words satisfy the recurrence given below and, hence, the empirical/conjectured formulas become true. (End) LINKS Alois P. Heinz, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..10000 (terms n = 1..200 from R. H. Hardin) Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (5,-10,10,-5,1). FORMULA Empirical: a(n) = (1/24)*n^4 - (1/12)*n^3 + (23/24)*n^2 + (13/12)*n + 3. Conjectures from Colin Barker, Apr 27 2018: (Start) G.f.: -(2*x^5 - 7*x^4 + 11*x^3 - 6*x^2 + 1)/(x - 1)^5. a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2) + 10*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n > 5.
