FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = a(n-1) +8*a(n-2) -8*a(n-3) -28*a(n-4) +28*a(n-5) +56*a(n-6) -56*a(n-7) -70*a(n-8) +70*a(n-9) +56*a(n-10) -56*a(n-11) -28*a(n-12) +28*a(n-13) +8*a(n-14) -8*a(n-15) -a(n-16) +a(n-17) for n>65.

Empirical for n mod 2 = 0: a(n) = (319253509046272/315)*n^8 - (2945579436998656/21)*n^7 + (417387011505258496/45)*n^6 - (5680344823516484096/15)*n^5 + (1861327919333148550921/180)*n^4 - (575420368345587182792/3)*n^3 + (164089389444136785259229/70)*n^2 - (3604156184637146154909821/210)*n + 57374514750466974203474 for n>48.

Empirical for n mod 2 = 1: a(n) = (319253509046272/315)*n^8 - (5947094783229952/45)*n^7 + (373238238302830592/45)*n^6 - (14547581331407468032/45)*n^5 + (1523828668871093157641/180)*n^4 - (6800467172678093885353/45)*n^3 + (561465751276267695242221/315)*n^2 - (378712331403727320080417/30)*n + (163612095136090005773229/4) for n>48.
