%N Decimal expansion of (sqrt(Pi)/(2^(1/4)*Gamma(5/8)*Gamma(7/8)))^2.

%C This is the value of hypergeometric([1/4,1/4],[1],-1)^2. See A278143/A241756 for the partial sums of the hypergeometric series hypergeometric([1/2/,1/2,1/2],[1,1],-1) which has this value due to Clausen's formula. See the Hardy reference, p. 106, eq. (7.4.4) where this value is written as (Gamma(9/8)/(Gamma(5/4)*Gamma(7/8)))^2.

%F hypergeometric([1/2/,1/2,1/2],[1,1],-1) = hypergeometric([1/4,1/4],[1],-1)^2 = Sum_{k>=0} (-1)^k*(risefac(k,1/2)/k!)^3, where risefac(x,m) = Product_{j =0..m-1} (x+j), and risefac(x,0) = 1.

%F (Gamma(9/8)/(Gamma(5/4)*Gamma(7/8)))^2 = (sqrt(Pi)/(2^(1/4)*Gamma(5/8)*Gamma(7/8)))^2.

%e The value of the series 1 - (1/2)^3 + (1*3/(2*4))^3 - (1*3*5/(2*4*6) + ... is 0.909172794546929700739778854282651225720527299592205228386414021837...

%e This is also the value of the series Sum_{n>=0} c(n) with c(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} a(k)*a(n-k), where a(0)=1 and a(k) = (-1)^k*(1*5*9 *** (4*k-3)/(4*8*12 *** (4*k)))^2, k >= 1 (self-convolution of the hypergeometric([1/4,1/4],[1],-1) series).
