COMMENTS

For the rationals Zeta(k,n) for k = 1..10 and n = 1..20, see the W. Lang link.

a(n) gives the partial sum, Zeta(6,n), of Euler's (later Riemann's) Zeta(6). Zeta(k,n), k >= 2, is sometimes also called H(k,n) because for k = 1 these would be the harmonic numbers A001008/A002805. However, H(1,n) does not give partial sums of a convergent series.

FORMULA

a(n) = numerator(Sum_{k=1..n} 1/k^6) = numerator(A291456(n)/(n!)^6).

G.f. for rationals Zeta(6, n): polylogarithm(6, x)/(1-x).

Zeta(6, n) = (1/945)*Pi^6 - psi(5, n+1)/5!, see eq. 6.4.3 with m = 5, p. 260, of the Abramowitz-Stegun reference. - Wolfdieter Lang, Dec 03 2013

EXAMPLE

The first few fractions are 1, 65/64, 47449/46656, 3037465/2985984, 47463376609/46656000000, ... = A103345/A103346. - Petros Hadjicostas, May 10 2020
