COMMENTS

Differs from the absolute values of A275994 the first time at index 60.

Consider the C(k)-summation process for divergent series: the series Sum((-1)^n*(n+1)^k) == 1 - 2^k + 3^k - 4^k + ..., summable C(1) to the value 1/2 for k = 0, is for each k >= 1 exactly summable C(k+1) to the sum s(k+1) = (2^(k+1)-1)*B(k+1)/ (k+1) and so a(n) = abs(numerator(s(2n))). - Benoit Cloitre, Apr 27 2002

Odd part of tangent numbers A000182 (even part is 2^A101921(n)). - Ralf Stephan, Dec 21 2004

(-1)^n*a(n+1) is the numerator of Euler(2n+1,1). - N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 10 2009 (a misprint corrected by Vladimir Shevelev, Sep 18 2017)

a(n) is the absolute value of the constant term of the Euler polynomial E_{2n-1} times the even part of 2n. - Peter Luschny, Nov 26 2010

From Vladimir Shevelev, Aug 31 2017: (Start)

Let E_m(x) = x^m + Sum_{odd k=1..m} e_k(m)*x^(m-k) be the Euler polynomial, let 2*n-1 <= m. Show that the expression c(m,n) = |e_(2*n-1)(m)|/binomial(m,2*n-1) does not depend on m and c(m,n) = a(n)/A006519(2*n). Indeed, by the formula in the Shevelev link |e_(2*n-1)(m)| = binomial(m,2*n-1)*(4^n-1)*B_(2*n)/n. On the other hand, by Cloitre's formula, we have a(n) = (4^n-1)*|B_(2*n)|*2^A001511(n) /n. Taking into account that 2^A001511 = A006519(2*n) we obtain the claimed equality. Since sign(e_k(n)) = (-1)^((k+1)/2), we have the following application of the sequence: e_k(n) = (-1)^((k+1)/2))*a((k+1)/2)*binomial(n,k)/A006519(k+1). (End)

FORMULA

a(n) = (-1)^n/n*(1 - 4^n)*B(2*n)*2^A001511(n) where B(k) denotes the k-th Bernoulli number. - Benoit Cloitre, Dec 30 2003

This is different from the sequence of numerators of the expansion of cosec(x) - cot(x) - see A089171.

From Johannes W. Meijer, May 24 2009: (Start)

a(n) = denominator(4*n/((2^(2*n)-1)*bernoulli(2*n))).

Equals A160469(n)/A048896(n-1).

Equals A089171(n)*A089170(n-1). (End)

E.g.f.: a(n) = numerator((2*n+1)!*[x^(2*n+1)](1/(1+1/exp(x)))). - Peter Luschny, Jul 12 2012

a(n) = numerator(abs(2*(4^n-1)*zeta(1-2*n))). - Jean-François Alcover, Oct 16 2013

For every positive integers n,k we have a(n) = (-1)^(n+k)*N(2*n-1,k) + 2*(-1)^(n-1)*A006519(2*n)*(1^(2*n-1)-2^(2*n-1)+..+(-1)^k*(k-1)^(2*n-1)), where N(n,k) is the numerator of Euler(n,k). So, the right hand side is an invariant of k. - Vladimir Shevelev, Sep 19 2017

a(n) = numerator(r(n)) where r(n) = (-1)^binomial(2*n, 2)*Sum_{k=1..2*n}(-1)^k*Stirling2(2*n, k)*2^(-k)*(k-1)!. - Peter Luschny, May 24 2020

a(n) = 2*(-1)^n*A335956(2*n)*zeta(1-2*n). - Peter Luschny, Aug 30 2020
