COMMENTS

Re-express the Girard-Waring formulae to yield the mean powers in terms of the mean symmetric polynomials in the data values. Then for a family of 5 data, the sum of the positive coefficients in these polynomials is a(n). a(n+1)/a(n) approaches 1/(2^(1/5)-1). (For a family of 2 data, the coefficients of these polynomials give the Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind.) See extended comment in A301417.

FORMULA

G.f.: (-x*(x+1)^4+1)/(x^6+4*x^5+5*x^4-5*x^2-6*x+1); this denominator equals (1-x)*(2-(x+1)^5) (conjectured).

a(n+14) = 7*a(n+13) - a(n+12) - 6*a(n+11) + 2*a(n+10) - a(n+9) + 4*a(n+8) + a(n+7) + 4*a(n+5) + 2*a(n+4) - a(n+3) - 5*a(n+2) - 4*a(n+1) - a(n) (conjectured).
