COMMENTS

Sierpiński introduced three constants in his 1908 doctoral thesis. The first, K, is very well known, bears his name and its decimal expansion is given in A062089. However, the second and third of these constants appear to have been largely forgotten. This sequence gives the decimal expansion of the second one, K2, and A222883 gives the decimal expansion of the third , K3. The formula given below show that K2 is related to several other, naturally occurring constants.

FORMULA

K2 = 4 / Pi * (eulergamma + K / Pi  12 / Pi^2 * zeta'(2) + log(2) / 3 1), where K is Sierpiński's first constant (A062089) and eulergamma is the EulerMascheroni constant (A001620).
K2 = 4 * (12 * log(Gamma(3/4))  9*log(Pi) + 72*log(A)  5*log(2) + 3 * eulergamma  3) / (3 * Pi), where A is the GlaisherKinkelin constant (A074962).
K2 = 4 * (12 * log(Gamma(3/4)) + log(A^72 * e^(3*eulergamma  3) / (32 * Pi^9))) / (3 * Pi).
K2 = 4 / Pi * (log(e^(3*eulergamma  1) / (2^(2/3) * G^2))  12 / Pi^2 * zeta'(2)), where G is Gauss’ AGM constant (A014549).
K2 = 4 / Pi * (log(Pi^2 * e^(3*eulergamma  1) / (2^(2/3) * L^2))  12 / Pi^2 * zeta'(2)), where L is Gauss’ lemniscate constant (A062539).
