COMMENTS

The Berndt-type sequence number 4 for the argument 2Pi/7 - see also A215007, A215008, A215143 and A215494.

We have a(n)=A079309(n) for n=1..6, and A079309(7)-a(7)=1.

FORMULA

a(n)*sqrt(7) = s(1)^(2n-1) + s(2)^(2n-1) + s(4)^(2n-1), where s(j) := 2*Sin(2*Pi*j/7) (for the sums of the respective even powers see A215494, see also A094429, A115146). For the proof of these formula see Witula-Slota's paper.

G.f.: x*(1-3*x)/(1-7*x+14*x^2-7*x^3).

a(n) = A275830(2*n-1)/(7^n). - Kai Wang, May 25 2017
