FORMULA

a(n) = numerator(r(n)) with the rationals r(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (-1)^k/(2*k+1)^2 = (Zeta(2, 1/4) - Zeta(2,floor(n/2) + 5/4) - (Zeta(2, 3/4) - Zeta(2,floor((n-1)/2) + 7/4)))/16, Zeta(2, z) = Psi(1, z), with the Hurwitz Zeta function and the trigamma function Psi(1, z).

The limit n-> infinity of r(n) is the Catalan constant given in A006752; see in particular the formula (Zeta(2, 1/4) - (Zeta(2, 3/4))/16.

EXAMPLE

The rationals r(n) begin: 1, 8/9, 209/225, 10016/11025, 91369/99225, 10956424/12006225, 1863641881/2029052025, 1854623872/2029052025, 538015351033/586396035225, 193637145687688/211688968716225, 194117166024913/211688968716225, 102476291858462752/111983464450883025, ...

r(10^5) = 0.9159655942 (Maple 10 digits) to be compares with 0.91596559417... from A006752.
