 OFFSET 0,2 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. LINKS 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.
