The denominators are found in A130036.

The rationals r(n)=a(n)/A130036(n) (in lowest terms) converge for n->infinity to 1/agM(1,sqrt(3)/2). The value for sqrt(3)/2 is approx. 0.866.

1/agM(1,sqrt(3)/2) approx. 1.073182007 multiplies 2*Pi*sqrt(l/g) to give the period T of a (mathematical) pendulum with maximal deflection of 60 degrees from the downward vertical. The length of the pendulum is l and g is the gravitational acceleration on the earth's surface, approx. 9.80665 m/s^2.

1/agM(1,sqrt(3)/2)=(2/Pi)*K(1/4); complete elliptic integral of the first kind (see the Abramowitz-Stegun reference). K(1/4)=F(1/2,Pi/2) in the Cox reference.
