FORMULA

chi4(k) = Kronecker(-4, k); chi4(k) is 0, 1, 0, -1 when k reduced modulo 4 is 0, 1, 2, 3, respectively; chi4 is A101455.

Series: L(3, chi4) = Sum_{k>=1} chi4(k) k^{-3} = 1 - 1/3^3 + 1/5^3 - 1/7^3 + 1/9^3 - 1/11^3 + 1/13^3 - 1/15^3 + ...

Series: L(3, chi4) = Sum_{k>=0} tanh((2k+1) Pi/2)/(2k+1)^3. [Ramanujan; see Berndt, page 293]

Closed form: L(3, chi4) = Pi^3/32.

EXAMPLE

L(3, chi4) = 0.9689461462593693804836348458469186... = [0; 1, 31, 4, 1, 18, 21, 1, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 3, 6, 3, 28, ...], the convergents of which are 0/1, 1/0, [0/1], 1/1, 31/32, 125/129, 156/161, 2933/3027, 61749/63728, 64682/66755, 126431/130483, 317544/327721, 443975/458204, ..., with brackets marking index 0. Those prior to index 0 are for initializing the recurrence.
