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

FORMULA

Empirical: a(n) = a(n-1) +4*a(n-2) -4*a(n-3) -6*a(n-4) +6*a(n-5) +4*a(n-6) -4*a(n-7) -a(n-8) +a(n-9) for n>37.

Empirical for n mod 2 = 0: a(n) = 1205993472*n^4 - (163631318528/3)*n^3 + (2066136710043/2)*n^2 - (28779682481989/3)*n + 36218599097803 for n>28.

Empirical for n mod 2 = 1: a(n) = 1205993472*n^4 - (149159396864/3)*n^3 + (1739269789595/2)*n^2 - (22635744758878/3)*n + (53641243448399/2) for n>28.
