EXAMPLE

beta(5) = 5*Pi^5/1536 so a(2)=1536.

MATHEMATICA

beta[1] = Pi/4; beta[m_] := (Zeta[m, 1/4] - Zeta[m, 3/4])/4^m; a[n_, p_] := a[n, p] = beta[2*n+1]/Pi^(2*n+1) // N[#, p]& // Rationalize[#, 0]& // Denominator; a[n_] := Module[{p = 16}, a[n, p]; p = 2*p; While[a[n, p] != a[n, p/2], p = 2*p]; a[n, p]]; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 13}] (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Aug 19 2013 *)
