COMMENTS

a(n+1) is also the sequence of digits in the baseten expansion of the number representing the probability that an acute triangle could be formed with the pieces obtained by breaking a stick into three parts at random. The breaking points are chosen with uniform distribution and independently of one another.  Eugen J. Ionascu, Feb 19 2011

FORMULA

Log(8) = 2 + Sum_{n >= 1} 1/( n*(16*n^2  1) ). This summation was the first problem submitted by Ramanujan to the Journal of the Indian Mathematical Society. See Berndt, Corollary on p. 29.  Peter Bala, Feb 25 2015
Log(8) = 2 + Sum_{n >= 1} (1)^n*(n1)/(n*(n+1)).  Bruno Berselli, Sep 09 2020
