FORMULA From Eq. (1.3) of Ottaviani-Friedland (2014), a(n) is the coefficient of (abc)^(n-1) in the polynomial {((a+b)^n-c^n)*((a+c)^n-b^n)*((b+c)^n-a^n)} / {(a+b-c)*(a+c-b)*(b+c-a)}. a(n) satisfies the following fifth-order recurrence equation with polynomial coefficients: 72*(n + 2)*(245*n^4 + 3094*n^3 + 14447*n^2 + 29474*n + 22100)*(n + 1)^2*a(n) - (n + 2)*(21805*n^6 + 330981*n^5 + 2012733*n^4 + 6230951*n^3 + 10263446*n^2 + 8425060*n + 2639760)*a(n + 1) + (-10279296 - 13230*n^7 - 249641*n^6 - 29331496*n - 22847777*n^3 - 1998705*n^5 - 8785333*n^4 - 35069178*n^2)*a(n + 2) + (16026528 + 21560*n^7 + 413637*n^6 + 3343917*n^5 + 14735333*n^4 + 38132651*n^3 + 57777574*n^2 + 47273504*n)*a(n + 3) - (4410*n^6 + 70147*n^5 + 452903*n^4 + 1516515*n^3 + 2769127*n^2 + 2601986*n + 975888)*(n + 4)*a(n + 4) + (n + 5)*(n + 4)*(n + 3)*(245*n^4 + 2114*n^3 + 6635*n^2 + 8882*n + 4224)*a(n + 5) = 0 with initial conditions   [a(1), ..., a(5)] = [1, 6, 37, 240, 1621] and asymptotically   a(n) ~ (2/(sqrt(3)*Pi))*8^n/n.
