COMMENTS

beta_n(x) = sum_{k=0..n-1} C(n,k)b(-k)(z-1)^(n-k-1) for n > 0 and beta_0(x)=1. Here b(s) = 2*4^(-s)(zeta(s,1/4)-zeta(s,3/4)) where zeta(s,t) denotes the Hurwitz zeta function.

beta_n(0) are the signed Euler numbers 1,1,-1,-2,5,16,-61,... The sign pattern is the same as in the egf. tanh + sech.
