FORMULA

log(2) - Pi/8 = Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n+1)*(1/n) + (-1/2)*Sum_{n>=0} (-1)^n*(1/(2*n+1)).

Empirical g.f.: x*(1+2*x-2*x^2+x^3+2*x^4+9*x^5-2*x^6+14*x^7+2*x^8+3*x^9-2*x^10+3*x^11+x^12) / ((1-x)^3*(1+x)^3*(1-x+x^2)^2*(1+x+x^2)^2). - Colin Barker, Dec 17 2015

EXAMPLE

1/2 - 1/3 + 1/12 + 1/30 - 1/35 + 1/56 + 1/90 - 1/99 + 1/132 + 1/182 - 1/195 + 1/240 + ... = [(1 - 1/2) + (1/3 - 1/4) + (1/5 - 1/6) + (1/7 - 1/8) + (1/9 - 1/10) + (1/11 - 1/12) + ... ] - (1/2)*[(1 - 1/3) + (1/5 - 1/7) + (1/9 - 1/11) + (1/13 - 1/15) + ... ] = log(2) - Pi/8.
