Table of n, a(n) for n=0..14.

Travis Sherman, Summation of Glaisher- and Apery-like Series, University of Arizona, May 23 2000, p. 14, (3.89) - (3.93).

FORMULA

a(n-1) = f3(n)*(-1)^n*((n-1)!)^2, where f3(n) corresponds to the z values such that Sum_{k>=0} (-1)^k/(binomial(2*k,k)*2^k*(k+n)) = x*log(2) + y*(log(2))^2 + z. (See examples for connection with a(n) in terms of material at Links section.)

f2(n) corresponds to the y values, so f2(n) = (-1)^n*2^n*((2*n-1)!/((n-1)!)^2).

EXAMPLE

Examples ((3.89) - (3.93)) at page 14 in Links section as follows, respectively.

For n=1, f3(1) = 0, so a(0) = 0.

For n=2, f3(2) = 12, so a(1) = 12.

For n=3, f3(3) = -115, so a(2) = 460.

For n=4, f3(4) = 9688/9, so a(3) = 38752.

For n=5, f3(5) = -38743/4, so a(4) = 5578992.
