COMMENTS

Cf. A006784 for the definition of the Engel expansion.

The MathWorld link mentions the closed form of the Engel expansion of sinh(1). - Georg Fischer, Nov 22 2020

Wikipedia, Engel Expansion

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (3,-3,1).

FORMULA

a(1) = 3, a(n) = 18*(n*(2*n-3)+1 for n>1. - Ralf Stephan, Sep 03 2003

a(n) = 3*a(n-1)-3*a(n-2)+a(n-3) for n>4. G.f.: 3*x*(x^3-9*x^2-15*x-1)/(x-1)^3. - Colin Barker, Apr 13 2012

EXAMPLE

1/3 + 1/(3*54) + 1/(3*54*180) + 1/(3*54*180*378) + 1/(3*54*180*378*648) ...

          = 0.3395405572560086...

sinh(1/3) = 0.33954055725615013910126061...
