%C Consider the C(k)-summation process for divergent series: the series Sum((-1)^n*(n+1)^k) == 1 - 2^k + 3^k - 4^k + ..., summable C(1) to the value 1/2 for k = 0, is for each k >= 1 exactly summable C(k+1) to the sum s(k+1) = (2^(k+1)-1)*B(k+1)/ (k+1) and so a(n) = abs(numerator(s(2n))). - _Benoit Cloitre_, Apr 27 2002

%C Odd part of tangent numbers A000182 (even part is 2^A101921(n)). - _Ralf Stephan_, Dec 21 2004

%C (-1)^n*a(n+1) is the numerator of Euler(2n+1,1). - _N. J. A. Sloane_, Nov 10 2009 (a misprint corrected by _Vladimir Shevelev_, Sep 18 2017)

%C a(n) is the absolute value of the constant term of the Euler polynomial E_{2n-1} times the even part of 2n. - _Peter Luschny_, Nov 26 2010

%C From _Vladimir Shevelev_, Aug 31 2017: (Start)

%C Let E_m(x) = x^m + Sum_{odd k=1..m} e_k(m)*x^(m-k) be the Euler polynomial, let 2*n-1 <= m. Show that the expression c(m,n) = |e_(2*n-1)(m)|/binomial(m,2*n-1) does not depend on m and c(m,n) = a(n)/A006519(2*n). Indeed, by the formula in the Shevelev link |e_(2*n-1)(m)| = binomial(m,2*n-1)*(4^n-1)*B_(2*n)/n. On the other hand, by Cloitre's formula, we have a(n) = (4^n-1)*|B_(2*n)|*2^A001511(n) /n. Taking into account that 2^A001511 = A006519(2*n) we obtain the claimed equality. Since sign(e_k(n)) = (-1)^((k+1)/2), we have the following application of the sequence: e_k(n) = (-1)^((k+1)/2))*a((k+1)/2)*binomial(n,k)/A006519(k+1). (End)

%F a(n) = (-1)^n/n*(1 - 4^n)*B(2*n)*2^A001511(n) where B(k) denotes the k-th Bernoulli number. - _Benoit Cloitre_, Dec 30 2003

%F This is different from the sequence of numerators of the expansion of cosec(x)-cot(x) - see A089171.

%F a(n) = denominator(4*n/((2^(2*n)-1)*bernoulli(2*n))). - _Johannes W. Meijer_, May 24 2009

%F E.g.f.: a(n) = numerator((2*n+1)!*[x^(2*n+1)](1/(1+1/exp(x)))). - _Peter Luschny_, Jul 12 2012

%F For every positive integers n,k we have a(n) = (-1)^(n+k)*N(2*n-1,k) + 2*(-1)^(n-1)*A006519(2*n)*(1^(2*n-1)-2^(2*n-1)+..+(-1)^k*(k-1)^(2*n-1)), where N(n,k) is the numerator of Euler(n,k). So, the right hand side is an invariant of k. - _Vladimir Shevelev_, Sep 19 2017
