%N a(n) = (4*n)! / ((2*n)!*n!^2).

%C Appears in Ramanujan's theory of elliptic functions of signature 4.

%C H. A. Verrill proves that a(n) = Sum_{p + q + r = 3n} w^(p-q) * {(3n)!/(p! q! r!)}^2, with p, q, r >= 0 and w = primitive 3rd root of unity.

%C The family of elliptic curves "x=2*H1=p^2+q^2-(1/4)*q^4, 0<x<1" generates these a_n as the coefficients of the period-energy function "T(x)=2*Pi*2F1(1/4,3/4;1;x)". Applying complex transformation "q->sqrt(-1)*q" to H1 produces "x=2*H2=p^2-q^2-(1/4)*q^4, 0<x<1", with "T(x)=sqrt(2)*Pi*2F1(1/4,3/4;1;1-x)". This explains the appearance of factor sqrt(2)/2 in Ramanujan's nome q_1. - _Bradley Klee_, Feb 25 2018

%C Even-order terms in the diagonal of rational function 1/(1 - (x^2 + y^2 + z)). - _Gheorghe Coserea_, Aug 09 2018
