FORMULA

A046976(n)/a(n)= A000364(n)/(2n)!.

Let ZBS(z) = (HurwitzZeta(z,1/4) - HurwitzZeta(z,3/4))/(2^z-2) and R(z) = (cos(z*Pi/2)+sin(z*Pi/2))*(2^z-4^z)*ZBS(1-z)/(z-1)!. Then a(n) = denominator(R(2*n+1)) and A046976(n) = numerator(R(2*n+1)). - Peter Luschny, Aug 25 2015

EXAMPLE

sec(x) = 1 + 1/2*x^2 + 5/24*x^4 + 61/720*x^6 + 277/8064*x^8 + 50521/3628800*x^10 + ...

sech(x) = 1 - 1/2 *x^2 + 5/24 *x^4 - 61/720 *x^6 + 277/8064 *x^8 - ...

MAPLE

ZBS := z -> (Zeta(0, z, 1/4) - Zeta(0, z, 3/4))/(2^z-2):

R := n -> (-1)^floor(n/2)*(2^n-4^n)*ZBS(1-n)/(n-1)!:

seq(denom(R(2*n+1)), n=0..16); # Peter Luschny, Aug 25 2015
