FORMULA

Equals Gamma(1/4)^2/(8*sqrt(Pi)) = L/(4*sqrt(2)), where L is the Lemniscate constant (A064853).

From Peter Bala, Feb 26 2019: (Start)

C = (Pi/4)*( Sum_{n = -inf..inf} exp(-Pi*n^2) )^2.

C = (-1)^m*2^(2*m+1)/Catalan(m) * Product_{n >= 1} ( 1 - (4*m + 3)^2/(4*n + 1)^2 ), for m = 0,1,2,....

C = Integral_{x = 0..1} 1/sqrt(1 + x^4) dx.

C = (1/sqrt(2))*Integral_{x = 0..1} 1/sqrt(1 - x^4) dx.

C = (3/2)*Integral_{x = 0..1} sqrt(1 + x^4) dx - sqrt(2)/2.

C = (1/8)*Integral_{x = 0..1} 1/(x - x^2)^(3/4) dx.

C = Sum_{n >= 0} binomial(-1/2,n)/(4*n + 1) = Sum_{n >= 0} binomial(2*n,n)/4^n * 1/(4*n + 1).

C = (1/2)*Sum_{n >= 0} (-1)^n*binomial(-3/4,n)/(4*n + 1).

Continued fraction: 1 - 1/(5 + 20/(1 + 30/(3 + ... + (4*n)*(4*n + 1)/(1 + (4*n + 1)*(4*n + 2)/(3 + ... ))))).

C = A085565/sqrt(2). C = Pi/(4*A096427). (End)
