COMMENTS

The numerators seems to coincide with A161736(n+2).

Hardy considered the m-family of series H(m) = 1/m + (1/(m+1))*(1/2)^2 + (1/(m+2))*(1*3/(2*4))^2 + ... = Sum_{k>=0}(1/(m+k))*(risefac(1/2,k)/k!)^2, where risefac(x,m) = Product_{j=0..m-1} (x+j), and risefac(x,0) = 1. See the Hardy reference, p. 106, eq. (7.5.1) (with n=m).

The value of these series H(m) = (Gamma(m) / Gamma(m+1/2))^2 * Sum_{k = 0..m-1} (risefac(1/2,k)/k!)^2.

The present partial sums are for H(1) with value 1/Gamma(3/2)^2 = 4/Pi (A088538).

FORMULA

a(n)= denominator(r(n)) with the rationals r(n) = Sum_{k=0..n}(1/(k+1))*(risefac(1/2,k)/k!)^2 = Sum_{k=0..n} (1/(k+1))*(binomial(-1/2,k))^2  = Sum_{k=0..n}(1/(k+1))*((2*k-1)!!/(2*k)!!)^2 , with the rising factorial risefac(x,k) defined above. The double factorials are given in A001147 and A000165 with (-1)!! := 1.
