COMMENTS

log(3) = Sum_{k>=0} (9/(2k+1)+1/(2k+2))/9^(k+1).

log(3) = 1 + Sum_{k>=0} (1/(2k+2)+1/(2k+3))/9^(k+1).

David H. Bailey, A Compendium of BBP-Type Formulas for Mathematical Constants, page 14. [From Jaume Oliver Lafont, Sep 25 2009]

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,18,0,-81).

FORMULA

a(n) = (n+1)*9^[(n+1)/2] = 18*a(n-2) - 81*a(n-4).

Sum_{n>=0} 1/a(n) = log(3).

G.f.: (1+18*x+9*x^2)/(1-9*x^2)^2. - Jaume Oliver Lafont, Jan 29 2009

a(n) = (2-(-1)^n)*(n+1)*3^n. - Jaume Oliver Lafont, Sep 27 2009
