COMMENTS

Computed using suggestions from David W. Wilson posted to Sequence Fans mailing list (seqfan(AT)ext.jussieu.fr), May 30 2002
By the time n = 100 in the Mathematica coding below, each term < 10^143.
I conjecture that the constants defined in the present sequence, A048834, A071120, A048835, A048836, A048837, A048838 are irrational.  Sukanto Bhattacharya (susant5au(AT)yahoo.com.au), Apr 28 2008
