COMMENTS

The old name was: Decimal expansion of sum of reciprocals, main diagonal of the natural number array, A185787.

Let s(n) be the sum of reciprocals of the numbers in row n of the array T at A185787 given by T(n,k) = n + (n+k-2)(n+k-1)/2, and let r = (2*pi/sqrt(7))*tanh(pi*sqrt(7)/2), as at A226985. Then s(1) = r, and s(2) to s(5) are given by A228044 to A228047.

Let c(n) be the sum of reciprocals of the numbers in column n of T.  Then c(1) = 2; c(2) = 11/9, c(4) = 29/50, and c(3) is given by A228049.  Let d(n) be the sum of reciprocals of the numbers in the main diagonal, (T(n,n)); then d(2) = (1/12)*(pi)^2; d(3) = 1/2, and d(1) is given by A228048.

This is also the value of the series 1 + 2*Sum_{n>=1} 1/(4*n^4 + 1) = 1 + 2*(1/5 + 1/65 + 1/325 + ...). See the Koecher reference, p. 189. - Wolfdieter Lang, Oct 30 2017
