COMMENTS

Numerators coincide with the numbers depicted in A001163 but differ for the first time at entry nr. 33. See the W. Lang link.

Stirling's formula for GAMMA(z) (|arg(z)|<Pi) uses the asymptotic series sum((N(k)/a(k))*((1/z)^k)/k!,k=0..infinity). For N(k) see the W. Lang link.

FORMULA

a(n) = denominator(s(n)), where the signed rationals s(n) are the coefficients of ((1/z)^k)/k! in the asymptotic series appearing in Stirling's formula for GAMMA(z).
