%F This number is f(1) where f(x) = -1 + 2*(sqrt(4-x)*(8+x) + 12 * sqrt(x) * arctan(sqrt(x)/sqrt(4-x))) / sqrt((4-x)^5). This form corresponds to a generating function of the reciprocal Catalan numbers in the sense of Sprugnoli. [_Juan M. Marquez_, Mar 05 2009]

%F Equals -1 + hypergeom([1,2],[1/2],1/4); note hypergeom([1,2],[1/2],x/4) = 1/1 + 1/1*x + 1/2*x^2 + 1/5*x^3 + 1/14*x^4 + 1/42*x^5 + ... is the g.f. for the inverse Catalan numbers (including C(0)). [_Joerg Arndt_, Apr 06 2013]

%F From _Vaclav Kotesovec_, May 31 2015: (Start)

%F Equals 1 + Integral_{x=0..1} Product_{k>=1} (1-x^(9*k))^3 dx.

%F Equals 1 + Sum_{n>=0} (-1)^n * (2*n+1) / (9*n*(n+1)/2 + 1).

%F (End)

%F Equals 1 + Integral_{0..inf} x^3 BesselI_0(x) BesselK_0(x)^2 dx. - _Jean-Fran├žois Alcover_, Jun 06 2016
