 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Ramanujan-type sequence number 5 for the argument 2*Pi/9 is defined by the following relation: 81^(1/3)*a(n)=(c(1)/c(2))^(n + 1/3) + (c(2)/c(4))^(n + 1/3) + (c(4)/c(1))^(n + 1/3), where c(j) := Cos(2Pi*j/9) - for the proof see Witula's et al. papers. We have a(n)=cx(3n+1), where the sequence cx(n) and its two conjugate sequences ax(n) and bx(n) are defined in the comments to the sequence A214779. We note that ax(3n+1)=bx(3n+1)=0. Further we have ax(3n)=A214778(n), bx(3n)=cx(3n)=0 and bx(3n-1)=A214951(n), ax(3n-1)=cx(3n-1)=0. REFERENCES R. Witula, E. Hetmaniok, D.
