Annual Appeal: Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. In 2018 we replaced the server with a faster one, added 20000 new sequences, and reached 7000 citations (often saying "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

Jtilde2(n) are Apéry-like rational numbers that arise in the calculation of zetaQ(2), the spectral zeta function for the non-commutative harmonic oscillator using a Gaussian hypergeometric function.

Jtilde2(n) = J2(n)/J2(0) with J2(0) = 3*zeta(2) (normalization).

And 4n^2*J2(n) - (8n^2-8n+3)*J2(n-1) + 4(n-1)^2*J2(n-2) = 0 with J2(0) = 3*zeta(2) and J2(1) = 9*zeta(2)/4.

Jtilde2(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^k*binomial(-1/2,k)^2*binomial(n,k).

Jtilde2(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} binomial(2*k,k)*binomial(4*k,2*k)*binomial(2*(n-k),n-k)*binomial(4*(n-k),2*(n-k))/(2^(4*n)*binomial(2*n,n).

From Andrey Zabolotskiy, Oct 04 2016: (Start)

Jtilde2(n) = Integral_{ x >= 0 } (L_n(x))^2*exp(-x)/sqrt(Pi*x) dx, where L_n(x) is the Laguerre polynomial (A021009).

G.f. of Jtilde2(n): 2F1(1/2,1/2;1;z/(z-1))/(1-z).

(PARI) a(n) = numerator(sum(k=0, n, (-1)^k*binomial(-1/2, k)^2*binomial(n, k)));

(PARI) a(n) = numerator(sum(k=0, n, binomial(2*k, k)*binomial(4*k, 2*k)* binomial(2*(n-k), n-k)*binomial(4*(n-k), 2*(n-k))) / (2^(4*n)* binomial(2*n, n)));
