COMMENTS

Numerators are given under A121498.

This is the third member (p=3) of the fourth (normalized) p-family of partial sums of normalized scaled Catalan series CsnIV(p):=sum(((-1)^k)*C(k)/L(2*p+1)^(2*k),k=0..infinity) with limit L(2*p+1)*(-F(2*p+2) + F(2*p+1)*phi) = L(2*p+1)/phi^(2*p+1), with C(n)=A000108(n) (Catalan), F(n)= A000045(n) (Fibonacci), L(n) = A000032(n) (Lucas) and phi:=(1+sqrt(5))/2 (golden section).

The partial sums of the above mentioned fourth p-family are rIV(p;n):=sum(((-1)^k)*C(k)/L(2*p+1)^(2*k),k=0..n), n>=0, for p=1,...

For more details on this p-family and the other three ones see the W. Lang links under A120996 and A121498.

FORMULA

a(n)=denominator(r(n)) with r(n) := rIV(p=3,n) = sum(((-1)^k)*C(k)/L(2*3+1)^(2*k),k=0..n), with L(7)=29 and C(k):=A000108(k) (Catalan). The rationals r(n) are given in lowest terms.

EXAMPLE

Rationals r(n): [1, 840/841, 706442/707281, 594117717/594823321,

499653000011/500246412961, 420208173009209/420707233300201,...].

CROSSREFS

The second member (p=2) of this p-family is A121012/A121013.
