COMMENTS

The a(n) appear in the analysis of a sequence that is related to the Madhava-Gregory-Leibniz formula for Pi, see A166107.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..18.

FORMULA

Limit_{n -> infinity} A166107(2*n)/a(2*n) = Pi.

Limit_{n -> infinity} A166107(2*n+1)/a(2*n+1) = -Pi.

E.g.f.: 2F2(5/6,7/6; 1/3,2/3; 4*x^3) + 3*x*(2F2(5/6,7/6; 2/3,4/3; 4*x^3) + 5*x*2F2(7/6,11/6; 4/3,5/3; 4*x^3)/2). - Benedict W. J. Irwin, Oct 19 2016
