COMMENTS
a(n+1)/A173987(n+1) gives, for n >= 0, the partial sum Sum_{k=0..n} 1/(3*k+2)^2. The limit n -> infinity is given in A294967 as the Hurwitz Zeta function or the Trigamma function (1/9)*Zeta(2, 2/3) = (1/9)*Psi(1, 2/3) = 0.3404306010 ... - Wolfdieter Lang, Nov 12 2017

FORMULA
a(n) = numerator(r(n)) with r(n) = (1/9)*(4*(Pi^2)/3 - Zeta(2, 1/3) - Zeta(2, (3*n+2)/3)) = (1/9)*(Zeta(2, 2/3) - Zeta(2, (3*n+2)/3)) with the Hurwitz Zeta function Zeta(2, q). This becomes the formula given in the name. - Wolfdieter Lang, Nov 13 2017
a(n) = numerator of (1/9)*(2(Pi^2)/3 - J - Zeta(2, (3n+2)/3)) where J is the constant A173973 [which becomes the preceding formula].
a(n) = numerator of Sum_{k=0..(n-2)} 2/(3*k+2)^2. - G. C. Greubel, Aug 23 2018
