COMMENTS

Denominators are given in A097302.

The e.g.f. sum( A(2*n+1)*(x^(2*n+1))/(2*n+1)!,n=0..infinity) appears in the Stirling-formula derivation for N! with x=1/N in the exponent and the formula for A(2*n+1):=a(n)/A097302(n), n>=0, is given below. For Stirling's formula see A001163 and A001164.

The rationals A(2*n+1) = B(n):= (2*n)!*Bernoulli(2*(n+1))/(2*(n+1)) = a(n)/A097304(n) with A(2*n):=0 are the logarithmic transform of the rational sequence {A001163(n)/A001164(n)} (inverse of the sequence transform EXP)
