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 denominators are given in A101628.

Second member (m=3) of a family defined in A101028.

The limit s=lim(s(n),n->infty) with the s(n) defined below equals 8*sum(Zeta(2*k+1)/3^(2*k),k=1..infty) with Euler's (or Riemann's) Zeta function. This limit is 12*(log(3)-1) = 1.18334746...; see the Abramowitz-Stegun (given in A101028) reference p. 259, eq. 6.3.15 with z=1/3 together with p. 258.

FORMULA

a(n)=numerator(s(n)) with s(n)=24*sum(1/((3*k-1)*(3*k)*(3*k+1)), k=1..n).

EXAMPLE

s(3)= 24*(1/(2*3*4)+ 1/(5*6*7) + 1/(8*9*10)) = 241/210, hence a(3)=241 and A101628(3)=210.
