FORMULA

beta(x) = exp(-2*(Gamma(0, x) + log(x) + EulerGamma)), where Gamma(0,x) is the incomplete Gamma function,

m = A050996 = integral_{0..infinity} beta(x) dx,

alpha(x) = m - integral_{0..x} beta(t) dt,

v = 4*integral_{0..infinity} (((1 - exp(-x))*alpha(x))/(x*exp(x)) - ((x + exp(-x) - 1)*alpha(x)^2)/((beta(x)*x^2)* exp(2*x)) dx.
