FORMULA

a(n) ~ (1+r)^(2*n+3/2)/r^(4*n+7/2)/(4*Pi^(3/2)*n^(3/2))*sqrt((1-r)/(2+r)), where r is positive real root of the equation (1-r)^3*(1+r)=r^4, r = 0.58252220781047... - Vaclav Kotesovec, Nov 04 2012

Recurrence: (n-1)*n^3*(29412*n^4 - 246240*n^3 + 764259*n^2 - 1042332*n + 527381)*a(n) = 2*(n-1)*(235296*n^7 - 2322864*n^6 + 9245766*n^5 - 19022421*n^4 + 21621181*n^3 - 13561627*n^2 + 4459053*n - 605664)*a(n-1) + 2*(1647072*n^8 - 20377728*n^7 + 107506956*n^6 - 315721020*n^5 + 564159163*n^4 - 627527310*n^3 + 423779896*n^2 - 158592459*n + 25128864)*a(n-2) + 2*(n-2)*(4176504*n^7 - 49583844*n^6 + 243933522*n^5 - 641841009*n^4 + 971188553*n^3 - 841622632*n^2 + 385567572*n - 72023040)*a(n-3) - 4*(n-2)*(29412*n^4 - 128592*n^3 + 202011*n^2 - 134886*n + 32480)*(n-3)^3*a(n-4). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Nov 04 2012
