COMMENTS

For denominators see A120777.

From the expansion of 0 = sqrt(1-1) = 1-(1/2)*Sum(C(k)/4^k,k=0..infinity) one has r:=limit(r(n),n to infinity)=2, with the partial sums r(n) defined below.

The series a(n)/A046161(n+1) is absolutely convergent to 1. - Ralf Steiner, Feb 16 2017

If n >= 1 it appears a(n-1) is equal to the difference between the denominator and the numerator of the ratio (2n)!!/(2n-1)!!. In particular a(n-1) is the difference between the denominator and the numerator of the ratio A001147(2n-1)/A000165(2n). See examples. - Anthony Hernandez, Feb 05 2020

FORMULA

a(n) = numerator(r(n)), with the rationals r(n):=sum(C(k)/4^k,k=0..n) with C(k):=A000108(k) (Catalan numbers). Rationals r(n) are taken in lowest terms.

r(n) = (4/Pi)*(n+1)*int(x^n*arcsin(sqrt(x)),x=0..1). - Roland Groux, Jan 03 2011

r(n) = 2*[1-binomial(2*n+2,n+1)/4^(n+1)]. - Roland Groux, Jan 04 2011

a(n) = A141244(2n+2) = A141244(2n+3) (conjectural). - Greg Martin, Aug 16 2014, corrected by M. F. Hasler, Aug 18 2014

From Peter Luschny, Dec 21 2017: (Start)

a(n) = numerator(1-((n+1/2)!)/(sqrt(Pi)*(n+1)!)).

a(n) = 2^(2*(n+1) - HammingWeight(n+1))*(1 - ((n+1/2)!)/(sqrt(Pi)*(n+1)!)). (End)

EXAMPLE

Rationals r(n): [1, 5/4, 11/8, 93/64, 193/128, 793/512, 1619/1024, 26333/16384, ...].

From Anthony Hernandez, Feb 05 2020: (Start)

For n=4. The 4th even number is 8, and 8!!/(8-1)!! = 128/35, so a(4-1) = a(3) = 128 - 35 = 93.

For n=7. The 7th even number is 14, and 14!!/(14-1)!! = 2048/429, so a(7-1) = a(6) = 2048 - 429 = 1619. (End)

MAPLE

a := n -> 2^(2*(n+1) - add(i, i=convert(n+1, base, 2)))* (1-((n+1/2)!)/(sqrt(Pi)*(n+1)!)): seq(simplify(a(n)), n=0..23); # Peter Luschny, Dec 21 2017

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := f[n] = Numerator[(4/Pi) (n + 1) Integrate[x^n*ArcSin[Sqrt[x]], {x, 0, 1}]]; Array[f, 23, 0] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jan 03 2011 *)

a[n_] := 2^(2(n+1) - DigitCount[n+1, 2, 1])(1 - ((n+1/2)!)/(Sqrt[Pi](n+1)!));
