COMMENTS

The corresponding denominators are A120785(n).

The limit of this series is 4*(4-(sqrt(2)+sqrt(3))) = 3.414942518 (maple10, 10 digits).

See A121503 for the geometric interpretation of sqrt(2)+sqrt(3) and a Popper reference.

FORMULA

a(n) = numerator(r(n)) with r(n):= sum(C(k)*(1+2^(k+1))/16^k,k=0..n), n>=0, with C(k)=A000108(k) (Catalan numbers).
