COMMENTS

The denominator of Sum_{k=0 to m} 1/k! is m!/d, where d = A093101(m). If m = 4n+1 > 1, then d is even. n is a member when d = 2.

FORMULA

a(n) = A102581(n+1)/2.

EXAMPLE

1/0! + 1/1! + 1/2! + 1/3! + 1/4! + 1/5! = 163/60 and 60 = 5!/2 = (4*1+1)!/2, so 1 is a member.

MATHEMATICA

fQ[n_] := (Denominator[ Sum[1/k!, {k, 0, 4n + 1}]] == (4n + 1)!/2); Select[ Range[0, 274], fQ[ # ] &] (* Robert G. Wilson v, Jan 24 2005 *)

CROSSREFS

n is a member <=> 2n is a member of A102581 <=> A093101(4n+1) = 2 <=> A061355(4n+1) = (4n+1)!/2.
