%C The sequence D = (denominator(S(k, 2n+1)))_{k>0} is periodic for any n>0 . i.e. for n=2, D has period {1, 4, 12, 6, 6, 12, 12, 3, 1, 4, 4, 6, 6, 12, 12, 3, 3, 4, 4, 2, 6, 12, 12, 3, 3, 12, 4, 2, 2, 12, 12, 3, 3, 12, 12, 2, 2, 4, 12, 3, 3, 12, 12, 6, 2, 4, 4, 3, 3, 12, 12, 6, 6, 4, 4, 1, 3, 12, 12, 6, 6, 12, 4, 1, 1, 12, 12, 6, 6, 12, 12, 1} of length 72 and reaches 12 as maximum value, hence a(2)=12
