 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS This alternating series converges relatively slowly, but can be efficiently computed via an integral representation, which converges exponentially fast (see my formula below). I used this formula and PARI to compute 1000 digits of this series. Modern CAS are also able to evaluate it very quickly and to a high degree of accuracy. LINKS Iaroslav V.
