FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = (1/20160)*n^8 + (1/2520)*n^7 + (1/480)*n^6 + (43/360)*n^5 - (297/320)*n^4 + (1271/180)*n^3 - (75973/5040)*n^2 + (2081/105)*n - 12 for n>1.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Mar 11 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(4 - 23*x + 86*x^2 - 218*x^3 + 376*x^4 - 420*x^5 + 296*x^6 - 127*x^7 + 33*x^8 - 5*x^9) / (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>10.

(End)
