COMMENTS

The "monic slice" corresponds to integer polynomials of degree at most d, and of Mahler's measure at most 1. See Grizzard and Gunther (2016) section 2.1. For the volume of the d-th Chern-Vaaler star body, see A286522, A286523, A286524.

FORMULA

Numerator of 2^(d - e) * (e!)^-1 * Product_{j = 1..e} (2*j/(2*j + 1))^(d - 2 j)) * Sum_{j = 0..e} ((-1)^j * (d - 2*j)^e * binomial(e, j)), where e = floor((d-1)/2).

Floor(a(n)/A288757(n)) = A288758(n).
