%N Number of length-4 0..n arrays with no repeated value greater than the previous repeated value.

%H R. H. Hardin, <a href="/A269436/b269436.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..210</a>

%F Empirical: a(n) = n^4 + 4*n^3 + (11/2)*n^2 + (7/2)*n + 1.

%F Conjectures from _Colin Barker_, Jan 22 2019: (Start)

%F G.f.: x*(15 + 3*x + 10*x^2 - 5*x^3 + x^4) / (1 - x)^5.

%F a(n) = 5*a(n-1) - 10*a(n-2) + 10*a(n-3) - 5*a(n-4) + a(n-5) for n>5.
