Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The integral is Integrate[1/Sqrt[Log[y]],{y,1,x}]=Sqrt[Pi]*Erfi[Sqrt[Log[x]] with series expansion Sqrt[x-1]*Sum[c(i)*(x-1)^(i-1),{i,0,19}].

Numerator(c(n)) = A077230(n) (this sequence); denominator(c(n)) = A077231(n).

FORMULA

a(n) = numerator(sum(k=1..n, 4^(-k)*binomial(2*k,k)*sum(j=1..k, (j!*binomial(k,j)*(-1)^(j)*stirling1(n+j,j))/(n+j)!))), n>0, a(0)=2. - Vladimir Kruchinin, Feb 18 2015

EXAMPLE

Series expansion is Sqrt[x-1]*(2 + 1/6 (x-1) -7/240 (x-1)^2+ 5/448 (x-1)^3 -...), hence a(0)=2, a(1)=1, a(2)=-7, a(3)=5, etc.

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := If [n == 0, 2, Sum[4^(-k)*Binomial[2*k, k]*Sum[(j!*Binomial[k, j]*(-1)^j* StirlingS1[n+j, j])/(n+j)!, {j, 1, k}], {k, 1, n}]] // Numerator; Table[a[n], {n, 0, 20}] (* Jean-François Alcover, Feb 18 2015, after Vladimir Kruchinin *)

PROG

(Maxima)

a(n):=if n=0 then 2 else num(sum(4^(-k)*binomial(2*k, k)*sum((j!*binomial(k, j)*(-1)^(j)*stirling1(n+j, j))/(n+j)!, j, 1, k), k, 1, n)); /* Vladimir Kruchinin, Feb 18 2015 */
