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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

Resembles A036279, the denominators in the Taylor series for tan(x). The first difference occurs at a(12).

The numerators of the two formulas for this sequence lead to A001316, Gould's sequence.

Stephen Crowley indicated on Aug 25 2008 that a(n) = denominator(Zeta(2*n)/Zeta(1-2*n)) and here numerator((Zeta(2*n)/Zeta(1-2*n))/(2*(-1)^(n)*(Pi)^(2*n))) leads to Gould's sequence.

This sequence appears in the Eta and Zeta triangles A160464 and A160474. Its resemblance to the sequence of the denominators of the Taylor series for tan(x) led to the conjecture A156769(n) = A036279(n)*A089170(n-1). - Johannes W. Meijer, May 24 2009

a(n) = denominator( Product_{k=1..n-1} (2/(k*(2*k+1)) ).

G.f.: (1/2)*z^(1/2)*sinh(2*z^(1/2)).

From Johannes W. Meijer, May 24 2009: (Start)

a(n) = abs(A117972(n))/A000265(n).

a(n) = A036279(n)*A089170(n-1). (End)

a(n) = A049606(2*n-1). - Zhujun Zhang, May 29 2019
