R. H. Hardin, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = (1/90720)*n^9 + (1/2520)*n^8 + (19/3780)*n^7 + (1/45)*n^6 + (157/4320)*n^5 + (31/180)*n^4 + (28507/45360)*n^3 + (769/2520)*n^2 + (1783/630)*n.

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Dec 06 2018: (Start)

G.f.: x*(4 - 22*x + 81*x^2 - 140*x^3 + 163*x^4 - 137*x^5 + 75*x^6 - 23*x^7 + 3*x^8) / (1 - x)^10.

a(n) = 10*a(n-1) - 45*a(n-2) + 120*a(n-3) - 210*a(n-4) + 252*a(n-5) - 210*a(n-6) + 120*a(n-7) - 45*a(n-8) + 10*a(n-9) - a(n-10) for n>10.
