COMMENTS

Lehmer's coefficients stemming from an inverse binomial coefficient series.

Left-hand side (portion of integer-only values not multiplied by Pi or Pi/2) on the table of Dyson et al.

In the references, the infinite series is S_n(2) = A014307(n+1)*Pi/2 + A180875(n) for n >= 1 (and S_0(2) is not defined). - Petros Hadjicostas, May 14 2020

FORMULA

a(0)=1; if n>=1, then a(n) = a(n-1) + 1 + Sum_{m=1..n} binomial(n,m)*a(n-m). - Detlef Meya, Jan 22 2018

E.g.f.: 2*(arcsin(exp(x/2)/sqrt(2)) - Pi/4) * sqrt(exp(x)/(2-exp(x))^3) + exp(x)/(2-exp(x)). - Seiichi Manyama, Oct 21 2019

a(n) ~ Pi * n^(n+1) / (sqrt(2) * exp(n) * (log(2))^(n + 3/2)). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Oct 22 2019

E.g.f.: d/dx (f(x) * Integral f(x) dx), where f(x) = sqrt(exp(x)/(2-exp(x))), cf. A014307. - Seiichi Manyama, Oct 22 2019

MAPLE

f:=n->sum(j^n*(j!)^2*2^j/(2*j)!, j=1..infinity);

[seq(f(n), n=0..5)];
