COMMENTS

Numerators are all 1.
Setting x=1/3 into
1/(3*x)*log((1+x)/(1x)^2) = Sum_{k>=0} x^k/((2(1)^k)*(k+1)),
log(3) = Sum_{k>=0} 1/((2(1)^k)*(k+1)*3^k)
= Sum_{k>=0} (9/(2k+1)+1/(2k+2))/9^(k+1)
is obtained.
It appears that this is also the first differences of the generalized decagonal numbers A074377.  Omar E. Pol, Sep 10 2011
It appears that this is also A005408 and positive terms of A008588 interleaved.  Omar E. Pol, May 28 2012
With offset 1 this sequence is multiplicative (in fact, a generalized totient function): a(p^e) = p^e for any odd prime p and a(2^e) = 3*2^e for e >= 1.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Mar 09 2015

FORMULA

G.f.: (1+6*x+x^2)/(1x^2)^2.
a(n) = (2(1)^n)*(n+1) (see PARI's code by Jaume Oliver Lafont).
a(2n)= 2n+1. a(2n+1) = 6*(n+1).  R. J. Mathar, Apr 02 2011
