COMMENTS

a(n) are alternately divisible by 12 and 120, a(n)/(12,120,12,120,12,120,...) = 1, 1, 21, 2, 11, 273, ... . - Paul Curtz, Sep 13 2011 and Michel Marcus, Jan 05 2013

A141590/(2 before a(n+1)) = 1/2 + 1/12 - 1/120 + 1/252 is an old semi-convergent series for Euler's constants A001620 ("2 before a" meaning that one term, namely 2, is inserted before the sequence). This series is discussed in details in reference [Blagouchine, 2016], Sect. 3 and Fig. 3. - Paul Curtz, Sep 13 2011, Michel Marcus, Jan 05 2013 and Iaroslav V. Blagouchine, Sep 16 2015

a(n) = A006863(n)/2. - Michel Marcus, Jan 05 2013

FORMULA

Zeta(1-2n) = -Bernoulli(2n)/(2n).

G.f. for Bernoulli(2*n)/(2*n) = A001067(n)/A006953(n): (-1)^n/((2*Pi)^(2*n)*(2*n))*integral(log(1-1/t)^(2*n) dt,t=0,1). - Gerry Martens, May 18 2011

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