COMMENTS

The constant appears as a correction in effective radii of flux problems of particles undergoing certain random walks in one or three dimensions.
Also related to correction term to the asymptotics of sums of random numbers uniformly distributed on an interval (see Coffman et al., who also present a doublesum formula.)
