Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..15.

FORMULA

a(n) = gamma(2 + n)^2*(Pi^2/6 - 1 - digamma^(1)(2 + n)), where gamma(x) is the gamma function and digamma^(n)(x) is the n-th derivative of the digamma function. - Markus Bindhammer, Nov 26 2017

EXAMPLE

Let esf abbreviate "elementary symmetric function". Then

0th esf of {4}: 1;

1st esf of {4,9}: 4 + 9 = 13;

2nd esf of {4,9,16}: 4*9 + 4*16 + 9*16 = 244.

MATHEMATICA

f[k_] := (k + 1)^2; t[n_] := Table[f[k], {k, 1, n}]

a[n_] := SymmetricPolynomial[n - 1, t[n]]

Table[a[n], {n, 1, 22}] (* A203156 *)
