FORMULA

a(n) = Product_{k = 1...ceiling(n/2)} (2k)^binomial(n,2k-1).

EXAMPLE

Pi/2 = (2/1)^(1/2) * (4/3)^(1/4) * (32/27)^(1/8) * (4096/3645)^(1/16) * ...,

e = (2/1)^(1/1) * (4/3)^(1/2) * (32/27)^(1/3) * (4096/3645)^(1/4) * ... and

e^gamma = (2/1)^(1/2) * (4/3)^(1/3) * (32/27)^(1/4) * (4096/3645)^(1/5) * ....

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := Product[(2k)^Binomial[n, 2k-1], {k, 1, n/2 // Ceiling}];
