COMMENTS

The numerators are given in A333208.

See A333088 and A333089 for similar fractions for infinite sums of Fibonacci numbers.

Sum_{i >= 0} 1/(Lucas(i)*Lucas(i+2n)) is a fraction for n > 0.

Sum_{i >= 0} 1/Lucas(i)^2 = 1/4 + A105394, i.e., the n = 0 case, is believed to be trancendental.

FORMULA

a(n) = denominator of (1/Fibonacci(2n)) * Sum_{i = 1..n} 1/(Lucas(2i-2)*Lucas(2i-1)).

Lim_{n -> inf} (A333208(n)/a(n)) / (A333208(n-1)/a(n-1)) = 1 - 1/phi = 1/phi^2 = A132318.

The following generalization holds: (Start)

Let H_(a,b) (n) be defined by H_(a,b) (0) = a, H_(a,b) (1) = b and H_(a,b) (n) = H_(a,b) (n-1) + H_(a,b) (n-2) for n > 1, then

Sum_{i >= 0} 1/(H_(a,b) (i)*H_(a,b) (i+2n)) = (1/Fibonacci(2n)) * Sum_{i=1..n} 1/(H_(a,b) (2i-2)*H_(a,b) (2i-1)) for n > 0, and are thus all fractions. Specially, H_(0,1) are the Fibonacci numbers A000045, H_(2,1) as here, are the Lucas numbers A000032, and H_(3,1) are the Pibonacci numbers A104449. (End)

MATHEMATICA
