FORMULA

Expansion of q^(1/3) * 3*( b(q) / c(q) + c(q) / b(q)) in powers of q where b(), c() are cubic AGM theta functions. - Michael Somos, Mar 24 2007

G.f. A(x) satisfies 0 = f(A(x), A(x^2)) where f(u, v) = (u+v)^3 - (u^2 + 3*u - 18) * (v^2 + 3*v - 18).

G.f. A(x) satisfies 0 = f(A(x), A(x^2), A(x^4)) where f(u, v, w) = u^2 + w^2 + u*w + 18*(u+w) - (w+u)*v^2 - 9*v + 54.

Expansion of ( (eta(q^3) / eta(q^9))^4 + 9 * (eta(q^9) / eta(q^3))^4) in powers of q.

a(3*n) = 0. a(3*n-1) = A058095(n). a(3*n + 1) = 9 * A128758(n). - Michael Somos, Feb 19 2015

EXAMPLE

T9b = 1/q + 9*q - 4*q^2 + 36*q^4 + 2*q^5 + 126*q^7 + 12*q^8 + 324*q^10 + ...
