From Peter Bala, Oct 03 2019: (Start)

Numerators in the expansion of (2*sinh(x/2))^3 = x^3 + (1/8)*x^5 + (13/1920)*x^7 + (41/193536)*x^9 + ....

Let f(x) be a polynomial in x. The expansion of (2*sinh(x/2))^3 leads to a formula for the third central differences: f(x+3/2) - 3*f(x+1/2) + 3*f(x-1/2) - f(x-3/2) = (2*sinh(D/2))^3(f(x)) = D^3(f(x)) + (1/8)*D^5(f(x)) + (13/1920)* D^7(f(x)) + ..., where D denotes the differential operator d/dx.
