Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Index entries for sequences related to partitions

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1,2,-2,-1,1).

FORMULA

G.f.: 2*(1 + x*(1 + x*(-1 + x*(5 + 2*x)))) / ((1 - x)^3*(1 + x)^2).

a(n) = a(n-1) + 2*a(n-2) - 2*a(n-3) - a(n-4) + a(n-5), n>4.

a(n) = (2n + 2)*floor((n + 1)/2) + (2n - 2)*floor((n - 1)/2).

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 4; there is no partition for 2(1)-2 = 0, and for 2(1)+2 = 4, there is one partition into two even parts (2,2). The sum of these parts = 4.

a(3) = 20; 2(3)-2 = 4 has one partition with two even parts (2,2). Also, 2(3)+2 = 8 has two partitions with two even parts: (6,2) and (4,4). The sum total of the parts in these partitions is 2 + 2 + 6 + 2 + 4 + 4 = 20.
