COMMENTS

The formulas for this number and the constant in A113476 are exactly the same except for one small, crucial detail: the infinite sum has a denominator of 3i + 2 rather than 3i + 1, while in the closed form, log(2)/3 is subtracted from rather than added to (Pi * sqrt(3))/9.
Understandably, the typesetter for Spiegel et al. (2009) set the closed formula for this number incorrectly (as being the same as for A113476, compare equation 21.16 on the same page of that book).

FORMULA

Equals Sum_{k >= 0} (1)^k/(3k + 2) = 1/2  1/5 + 1/8  1/11 + 1/14  1/17 + ... (see A016789).
From Peter Bala, Feb 20 2015: (Start)
Equals 1/2 * Integral_{x = 0..1} 1/(1 + x^(3/2)) dx.
Generalized continued fraction: 1/(2 + 2^2/(3 + 5^2/(3 + 8^2/(3 + 11^2/(3 + ... ))))) due to Euler. For a sketch proof see A024396. (End)
