COMMENTS

Original name: Decimal expansion of sum(1/(n*binomial(2*n,n)), n=1..infinity).

This appears to be pi/sqrt(27). See A111510. - Marco Matosic, Feb 27 2008

This is Pi*sqrt(3)/9 = A019676*A002194, see eq (12) in D. H. Lehmer, Am. Math. Monthly 92 (1985) 449. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 04 2009

Value of the Dirichlet L-series of the non-principal character modulo m=3 (A102283) at s=1. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 03 2011

Construct the largest possible circle inside a given equilateral triangle. This constant is the ratio of the area of the circle to the area of the triangle (A245670 is analogous square in triangle). - Rick L. Shepherd, Jul 29 2014

FORMULA

-Pi/(3*sqrt(3)) = Sum_{n=0..infinity} (1/(6*n+1) - 2/(6*n+2) - 3/(6*n+3) - 1/(6*n+4) + 2/(6*n+5) + 3/(6*n+6)). - Mats Granvik, Sep 08 2013

Also equals integral_{0..infinity} 2*x/((x^2+1)*(x^4+x^2+1)) dx. [Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Sep 10 2013]

From Peter Bala, Feb 16 2015: (Start)

Pi/sqrt(27) = Sum {n >= 0} 1/((3*n + 1)*(3*n + 2)) = 1 - 1/2 + 1/4 - 1/5 + 1/7 - 1/8 + ....

Continued fraction: 1/(1 + 1^2/(1 + 2^2/(2 + 4^2/(1 + 5^2/(2 + ... + (3*n + 1)^2/(1 + (3*n + 2)^2/(2 + ... ))))))).

Pi/sqrt(27) = int {t = 0 .. 1/2} 1/(t^2 - t + 1) dt = int {t = 0 .. 1/2} (1 + t - t^3 - t^4)/(1 - t^6) dt.

Pi/sqrt(27) = 1/4*Sum {n >= 0} (-1)^n*(9*n + 5)/( (3*n + 1)*(3*n + 2)*8^n ).

BBP-type formulas:

Pi/sqrt(27) = Sum {n >= 0} (1/64)^(n+1)*( 32/(6*n + 1) + 16/(6*n + 2) - 4/(6*n + 4) - 2/(6*n + 5) ) follows from the above integral representation.

Pi/sqrt(27) = Sum {n >= 0} (-1)^n*(1/27)^(n+1)*( 9/(6*n + 1) + 9/(6*n + 2) + 6/(6*n + 3) + 3/(6*n + 4) + 1/(6*n + 5) ) follows from the result: Pi/3 = int {t = 0 .. 1/sqrt(3)} 1/(1 - sqrt(3)*t + t^2) dt. (End)

Equals the integral_{x=0..infinity} x*I_0(x)*K_0(x)^2 dx over a triple product of modified Bessel functions. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 14 2015
