FORMULA

chi3(k) = Kronecker(-3, k); chi3(k) is 0, 1, -1 when k reduced modulo 3 is 0, 1, 2, respectively; chi3 is A049347 shifted.

Series: L(3, chi3) = Sum_{k=1..infinity} chi3(k) k^{-3} = 1 - 1/2^3 + 1/4^3 - 1/5^3 + 1/7^3 - 1/8^3 + 1/10^3 - 1/11^3 + ...

Closed form: L(3, chi3) = 4 Pi^3/(81 sqrt(3)).

EXAMPLE

L(3, chi3) = 0.8840238117500798567430579168710118077... = 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/20 + 1/1449 + 1/2879423 + ..., the partial sums of which are 0, 1/2, 5/6, 53/60, 25619/28980, 73767966817/83445678540, ...

MATHEMATICA

nmax = 12; prec = 2000 (* Adjust the precision depending on nmax. *); c = N[ 4 Pi^3/(81 Sqrt[3]), prec]; e = First@Transpose@NestList[{Ceiling[1/(#[[2]] - 1/#[[1]])], #[[2]] - 1/#[[1]]}&, {Ceiling[1/c], c}, nmax - 1]; Numerator[ FoldList[Plus, 0, 1/e] ]
