Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

From Peter Bala, Oct 03 2019: (Start)

Numerators in the expansion of (2*sinh(x/2))^3 = x^3 + (1/8)*x^5 + (13/1920)*x^7 + (41/193536)*x^9 + ....

Let f(x) be a polynomial in x. The expansion of (2*sinh(x/2))^3 leads to a formula for the third central differences: f(x+3/2) - 3*f(x+1/2) + 3*f(x-1/2) - f(x-3/2) = (2*sinh(D/2))^3(f(x)) = D^3(f(x)) + (1/8)*D^5(f(x)) + (13/1920)* D^7(f(x)) + ..., where D denotes the differential operator d/dx.
