%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A229013/b229013.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = n^3 + 3*n^2 - 3*n + 1.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Sep 13 2018: (Start)

%F G.f.: x*(2 - x)*(1 + 4*x + x^2) / (1 - x)^4.

%F a(n) = 4*a(n-1) - 6*a(n-2) + 4*a(n-3) - a(n-4) for n>4.

%F (End)
