FORMULA

Equals 5*Pi^5/1536 = sum_{n>=1} 1/A101455(n)^5, where Pi^5 = A092731 .

Also equals sum_{n>=0} (-1)^n/(2*n+1)^5 [Jean-François Alcover, Mar 29 2013]

EXAMPLE

0.99615782807708806400631936...

MAPLE

DirichletBeta := proc(s) 4^(-s)*(Zeta(0, s, 1/4)-Zeta(0, s, 3/4)) ; end proc: x := DirichletBeta(5) ; x := evalf(x) ;

MATHEMATICA

DirichletBeta[x_] := (Zeta[x, 1/4] - Zeta[x, 3/4])/4^x; RealDigits[ DirichletBeta[5], 10, 105] // First (* Jean-François Alcover, Feb 20 2013 *)
