COMMENTS

Lim_{n -> infinity} b(n)/b(n-1) = 17+12*sqrt(2) for b = A156160, A156161, A156162, A278310.

Conjecturally, the fractional part 0.97056 27484 ... of this constant equals ( (1 + 2 * Sum_{n >= 1} (-1)^n*exp(-2*Pi*n^2))/(1 + 2 * Sum_{n >= 1} exp(-2*Pi*n^2)) )^4. The series are rapidly converging. For example, summing both series from n = 1 to n = 2 approximates the fractional part of the constant as ( (1 - 2*exp(-2*Pi) + 2*exp(-8*Pi))/(1 + 2*exp(-2*Pi) + 2*exp(-8*Pi)) )^4 = 0.97056 27484 77140 58562 026(89) ..., correct to 23 decimal places. - Peter Bala, Jun 05 2019
