COMMENTS

This is the value of one of Ramanujan's series: 1 - 5*(1/2)^5 + 9*(1*3/(2*4))^5 -13*(1*3*5/(2*4*6))^5 + - ... . See the Hardy reference p.7. eq. (1.4) and pp. 105-106. For the partial sums see A278140.

The proof of Hardy and Whipple mentioned in the Hardy reference reduces this series to (2/Pi)*Morley's series (for m=1/2). For this series see A277232 and A091670.

FORMULA

Equals Sum_{k=0..n} (1+4*k)*(binomial(-1/2,k))^5 = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^k*(1+4*k)*((2*k-1)!!/(2*k)!!)^5. The double factorials are given in A001147 and A000165 with (-1)!! := 1.

Equals A060294 * A091670.

For (1+4*k)*((2*k-1)!!/(2*k)!!)^5 see A074799(k) / A074800(k).
