FORMULA

Conjecture: a(n) ~ n^2/2. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 05 2017

Conjectures from Colin Barker, Oct 05 2017: (Start)

G.f.: (1 + x^2 + x^3 + x^6 - x^8 + x^9 + x^12 - x^13) / ((1 - x)^2*(1 - x^4)).

a(n) = (5 + (-1)^n + (1-i)*(-i)^n + (1+i)*i^n + 2*n + 4*n^2) / 8 for n>7 where i=sqrt(-1).

a(n) = 2*a(n-1) - a(n-2) + a(n-4) - 2*a(n-5) + a(n-6) for n>6.

(End)

EXAMPLE

For n = 3, the 3rd derivative of x^x is x^x + 3*x^x*log(x) + 3*x^x*log^2(x) + x^x*log^3(x) + 3*x^(x-1) + 3*x^(x-1)*log(x) - x^(x-2), so a(3) = 7.
