LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..8.

FORMULA

log(2)=cot(sum(n>=0, n, (-1)^n*acot(a(n))); let b(0)=log(2), b(n)=(b(n-1)*floor(b(n-1))+1)/(b(n-1)-floor(b(n-1)) then a(n)=floor(b(n))

PROG

(PARI) b(n)=if(n<0, 0, bn[n]);

bn=vector(100); bn[1]=log(2); for(n=2, 10, bn[n]=(b(n-1)*floor(b(n-1))+1)/(b(n-1)-floor(b(n-1))))

a(n)=floor(b(n+1))
