The numerators are always 1.

Let f(z) = Sum_{n>=0} (1/a(n))*z^(3*n) and g(z) = Sum_{n>=0}(1/b(n))*z^(3*n+1) with b(n) = A176731(n) build the two independent Airy functions Ai(z) = c[1]*f(z) - c[2]*g(z) and Bi(z) = sqrt(3)*(c[1]*f(z) + c[2]*g(z)) with c[1] = 1/(3^(2/3)*Gamma(2/3)), approximately 0.35502805388781723926 and c[2] = 1/(3^(1/3)*Gamma(1/3)), approximately 0.25881940379280679840.

If y = Sum_{n >= 0} x^(3*n)/a(n), then y'' = x*y. - Michael Somos, Jul 12 2019

Define W(z) = 1 + Sum_{n >= 0} (-1)^(n+1)* z^(3*n+1)/(a(n)*(3*n+1)). Then W(z) satisfies the o.d.e. W'''(z) + z*W'(z) = 0 with W(0) = 1, W'(0) = -1, and W''(0) = 0. The function 1/W(z) is the e.g.f. of A117226, which is the number of permutations of [n] avoiding the consecutive pattern 1243. In other words, Sum_{n >= 0} A117226(n)*z^n/n! = 1/W(z). See Theorem 4.3 (Case 1243 with u = 0) in Elizalde and Noy (2003). - Petros Hadjicostas, Nov 01 2019

FORMULA

a(n) = denominator((3^n)*risefac(1/3,n)/(3*n)!) with the rising factorials risefac(k,n) = Product_{j=0..n-1} (k+j) and risefac(k,0)=1.
