Hope this finds you well. A reader of mine sent me the following sequence  
and swears there are enough terms in it to find the next number/s: 
0,0, 6,42,156  . . . 
He goes on to say that the first zero is the " zeroth " term, the second  
zero, of course, is the first term. I'm usually pretty good at cracking these 
 and unless he has made a mistake in presentation, I don't have a clue as 
to what  this sequence is. I did find one sequence in your Encyclopedia that 
begins 6,42,  156  . .  but I'm not sure if that is applicable here. Any 

any ideas? - neil
