Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The period T of a simple gravity pendulum for arbitrary amplitudes is given by a complicated formula, see A223067. The Taylor series expansion of T as a function of the angular displacement phi leads for the denominators of the even powers of phi to the sequence given above and for the numerators to A223067.

EXAMPLE

T = 2*Pi*sqrt(L/g) * (1 + (1/16)*phi^2 + (11/3072)*phi^4 + (173/737280)*phi^6 + ... ).

MAPLE

nmax:=11: f := series(1/((Pi/4)*(1+cos(phi/2))/EllipticK((1-cos(phi/2))/(1+cos(phi/2)))), phi, 2*nmax+1): for n from 0 to nmax do a(n):= denom(coeff(f, phi, 2*n)) od: seq(a(n), n=0..nmax); # Johannes W. Meijer, Jan 05 2017

MATHEMATICA

s = Series[EllipticK[Sin[t/2]^2 ], {t, 0, 50}]; CoefficientList[2*s, t^2] // Denominator (* Jean-François Alcover, Oct 07 2014 *)
