COMMENTS

From Jon E. Schoenfield, Aug 17 2014: (Start)

Evaluating the partial sums

   Sum_{k=1..j} 2*(1 + x_k ^ 2)^(-3/2)

(where x_k is the k-th root of tan(t)=t; see the Mathworld link) at j = 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, ..., it becomes apparent that they approach

   c0 + c2/j^2 + c3/j^3 + c4/j^4 + ...

where

   c0 = 0.02825176416006793787321073299629898515427...

and c2 and c3 are -4/Pi^3 and 16/Pi^3, respectively.

(The k-th root of tan(t)=t is

   r - d_1/r - d_2/r^3 - d_3/r^5 - d_4/r^7 - d_5/r^9 - ...

where r = (k+1/2) * Pi and d_j = A079330(j)/A088989(j).) (End)

d_n = A079330(n)/A088989(n) ~ GAMMA(1/3) / (2^(2/3) * 3^(1/6) * Pi^(5/3)) * (Pi/2)^(2*n) / n^(4/3). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Aug 19 2014
