The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation. 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 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 A165998 Denominators of Taylor series expansion of 1/(3*x)*log((1+x)/(1-x)^2) 27

 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS Numerators are all 1. Setting x=1/3 into 1/(3*x)*log((1+x)/(1-x)^2) = Sum_{k>=0} x^k/((2-(-1)^k)*(k+1)), log(3) = Sum_{k>=0} 1/((2-(-1)^k)*(k+1)*3^k) = Sum_{k>=0} (9/(2k+1)+1/(2k+2))/9^(k+1) is obtained. It appears that this is also the first differences of the generalized decagonal numbers A074377. - Omar E. Pol, Sep 10 2011 It appears that this is also A005408 and positive terms of A008588 interleaved. - Omar E.

Shiue, Zihan Nie, and Minghao Chen, Recursive sequences and Girard-Waring identities with applications in sequence transformation, Electronic Research Archive (2020) Vol. 28, No. 2, 1049-1062. Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (0,2,0,-1). FORMULA G.f.: (1+6*x+x^2)/(1-x^2)^2. a(n) = (2-(-1)^n)*(n+1) (see PARI's code by Jaume Oliver Lafont). a(2n)= 2n+1. a(2n+1) = 6*(n+1). - R. J. Mathar, Apr 02 2011 With offset 1 this sequence is multiplicative (in fact, a generalized totient function): a(p^e) = p^e for any odd prime p and a(2^e) = 3*2^e for e >= 1. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Mar 09 2015 With offset 1, Dirichlet g.f.: zeta(s-1) * (1 + 2^(2-s)). - Amiram Eldar, Oct 25 2023 MATHEMATICA LinearRecurrence[{0, 2, 0, -1}, {1, 6, 3, 12}, 50] (* Vincenzo Librandi, Feb 22 2012 *) PROG (PARI) a(n)=(2-(-1)^n)*(n+1) (Magma) [(2-(-1)^n)*(n+1): n in [0..350]]; // Vincenzo Librandi, Apr 04 2011 CROSSREFS Cf.
