 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS The Berndt-type sequence number 10 for the argument 2Pi/9 defined by the first trigonometric relation from the section "Formula" below. The sequence a(n) is connected with sequences A215917 and A215885 - see the respective formula. We have A035045(n)=abs(a(n+1)/3) for every n=0,1,...,5 and A035045(7) + a(7)/3 = 1, A035045(8) - a(8)/3 = 10, A035045(9) + a(9)/3 = 63, and A035045(10) - a(10)/3 = 320 - all these four results-numbers are in A069269.
