 OFFSET 0,4 COMMENTS Also the number of inequivalent ways to color the corners of an octahedron using at most n colors so that no color appears more than twice. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..33. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (7,-21,35,-35,21,-7,1). FORMULA a(n) = (n-2)^2*(n-1)*n^2*(n+5)/24. G.f.: 3*x^3*(-2-10*x+x^2+x^3)/(x-1)^7 . - R. J. Mathar, Feb 23 2017 EXAMPLE For n=3 we get a(3)=6 ways to color the faces of a cube with three colors so that no color appears more than twice.
