 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS a(n) equals the absolute value of the imaginary part of the determinant of the (4n+2) X (4n+2) matrix with i's along the superdiagonal (where i is the imaginary unit) and 2, 3, 4, ..., 4n+2 along the subdiagonal, and 0's everywhere else (see Mathematica code below). - John M. Campbell, Jun 04 2011 These are the denominators in the Taylor (Maclaurin) series expansion of sin(x) about the point x_0 = 0 and then evaluated at x = Pi/2.  Hence, Sum_{n>=0}(-1)^n*Pi^(2n+1)/a(n) = 1. - Geoffrey Critzer, Jun 08 2016 LINKS Vincenzo Librandi, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..100 Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Riemann-Siegel Functions FORMULA a(n) = A000165(2n+2) where A000165(k) are the double factorial numbers 2^k*k!=(2k)!!. sqrt((1-cos(x))/2) = sum(n>=0, (-1)^n * x^(2*n+1) / a(n) ).
