COMMENTS

Integral representation as n-th moment of a positive function on a positive halfaxis (solution of the Stieltjes moment problem), in Maple notation: a(n)=int(x^n*((1/16*(2*Pi^(3/2)*sqrt(2)*hypergeom([], [1/2, 3/4], -(1/256)*x)*sqrt(x) -2*Pi*sqrt(2)*hypergeom([], [3/4, 5/4], -(1/256)*x)*GAMMA(3/4)*x^(3/4) +sqrt(Pi)*GAMMA(3/4)^2*hypergeom([], [5/4, 3/2], -(1/256)*x)*x))*sqrt(2)/(GAMMA(3/4)*x^(5/4)*Pi^(3/2))), x=0..infinity), n=0,1... .

This solution may not be unique.

FORMULA

G.f.: sum(a(n)*x^n/(n!)^3,n=0..infinity)=hypergeom([1/4, 1/2, 3/4], [1, 1], 256*x).

a(n) ~ 2*(1-1/(16*n)+1/(512*n^2)+331/(122880*n^3)+O(1/n^4)))*(2^n)^8/(((1/n)^n)^3*(exp(n))^3),n->infinity.

1/a(n) = n!*[x^n](cosh(x^(1/4))+cos(x^(1/4)))/2. - Peter Luschny, Jul 12 2012
