COMMENTS

Numerators are all 1.

Setting x=1/3 into

1/(3*x)*log((1+x)/(1-x)^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)/(1-x^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
