FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = (1/2240)*n^8 - (1/90)*n^7 + (17/96)*n^6 - (373/360)*n^5 - (4459/960)*n^4 + (49529/360)*n^3 - (348947/336)*n^2 + (55477/15)*n - 5259 for n>6.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Jul 25 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(4 - 27*x + 105*x^2 - 241*x^3 + 342*x^4 - 249*x^5 + x^6 + 204*x^7 - 240*x^8 + 223*x^9 - 206*x^10 + 161*x^11 - 76*x^12 + 22*x^13 - 5*x^14) / (1 - x)^9.

a(n) = 9*a(n-1) - 36*a(n-2) + 84*a(n-3) - 126*a(n-4) + 126*a(n-5) - 84*a(n-6) + 36*a(n-7) - 9*a(n-8) + a(n-9) for n>15.

(End)
