COMMENTS
The Berndt-type sequence number 14 for the argument 2Pi/9 defined by the relation: A(n)*(-sqrt(3))^n = t(1)^n + (-t(2))^n + t(4)^n = (-sqrt(3) + 4*s(1))^n + (-sqrt(3) - 4*s(2))^n + (-sqrt(3) + 4*s(4))^n, where s(j) := sin(2*Pi*j/9) and t(j) := tan(2*Pi*j/9).
The definitions of the other Berndt-type sequences for the argument 2Pi/9 like A215945, A215948, A216034 in Crossrefs are given.
We note that all a(2*n), n=2,3,..., are divisible by 3, and it is only when n=5 that a(2*n) is divisible by 9.

FORMULA
G.f.: (1+x-22*x^2+2*x^3+9*x^4+x^5)/(1-33*x^2+27*x^4-3*x^6). - Bruno Berselli, Oct 01 2012
EXAMPLE
Note that A(0)=A(1)=3, a(0)=a(1)=1, A(2)=a(2)=11, A(3)=a(3)=35, A(4)=115, a(4)=345 and A(5) = 1129/3, which implies the equality 3387*sqrt(3) = -t(1)^5 + t(2)^5 - t(4)^5.
