COMMENTS

Denominators are given under A120793.

From the expansion of sqrt(1+1/3) = 1+(1/6)*sum(C(k)/(-12)^k,k=0..infinity) one has, with the partial sums r(n) are defined below, r:=limit(r(n),n to infinity)= 2*(2*sqrt(3)-3)) = 0.9282032302....

FORMULA

a(n)=numerator(r(n)), with the rationals r(n):=sum(((-1)^k)*C(k)/12^k,k=0..n) with C(k):=A000108(k) (Catalan numbers). Rationals r(n) are taken in lowest terms.

EXAMPLE

Rationals r(n): [1, 11/12, 67/72, 1603/1728, 9625/10368, 4277/4608,

230969/248832, 11086369/11943936, 199555357/214990848,...].
