FORMULA

G.f.: (5+97*x+97*x^2+5*x^3)/(1-x)^4; a(n)=34*n^3+51*n^2+27*n+5=(2*n+1)*(17*n^2+17*n+5)=-a(-1-n).

EXAMPLE

Zeta(3) = 1.20205690315959428539973816151...,

while eight terms of the sequence gives 6/(5-1^6/(117-2^6/(535-3^6/(1463-4^6/(3105-5^6/(9347-6^6/(14355)))))))) = 1.20205690315959366144848279245...

MAPLE

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := (2n + 1)(17n^2 + 17n + 5);
