FORMULA

Let q(n) = Sum_{k=0..n-1} (-1)^k*A201637(n-1,k) then a(n) = numerator((-1)^(n-1)*q(2*n)/(2*n)!). - Peter Luschny, Nov 16 2012

EXAMPLE

log(1/cos(x)) = 1/2*x^2+1/12*x^4+1/45*x^6+17/2520*x^8+31/14175*x^10+...

log(cos(x)) = -(1/2*x^2+1/12*x^4+1/45*x^6+17/2520*x^8+31/14175*x^10+...).

MAPLE

q:= proc(n) add((-1)^k*combinat[eulerian1](n-1, k), k=0..n-1) end: A046990:= n -> numer((-1)^(n-1)*q(2*n)/(2*n)!):
