COMMENTS

If r(n) = A067764(n)/A067653(n) then r(n)/(exp(2*sqrt(n))/(2*n^(3/4)*sqrt(Pi*e))) has an asymptotic expansion in ascending powers of 1/sqrt(n) whose coefficients are rational numbers 1, -5/48, etc. The sequence gives the denominators of these rational numbers.

Another expression for r(n), n > 0, is r(n) = M(n+1,2,1)/e, where M(a,b,z) = 1F1(a;b;z) is a confluent hypergeometric function (Kummer function).

The same rational numbers, except for signs, occur in the asymptotic expansion of the Maclaurin coefficients of exp(1/(1-x))*E1(1/(1-x)), where E1(x) is an exponential integral. See Lemmas 1-2 and Theorem 5 of the preprint by Brent et al. (2018).

FORMULA

A formula is given in Theorem 5, and a recurrence in Lemma 7, of Brent et al. (2018).

EXAMPLE

The asymptotic expansion is 1 - 5*h/48 - 479*h^2/4608 - 15313*h^3/3317760 + ..., where h = 1/sqrt(n).

CROSSREFS

The numerators are A321939. The formula in Theorem 5 of Brent et al. (2018) uses A321937(n)/A321938(n).

Sequence in context: A174755 A269419 A299422 * A222846 A265666 A114721
