Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

From Ralf Steiner, Apr 04 2017: (Start)

By analytic continuation to the entire complex plane there exist regularized values for divergent sums such as:

Sum_{k>=0} a(k)^2/16^k = 2F1(-3/2,-3/2,1,9).

Sum_{k>=0} a(k) / 6^k = -i. (End)

R. Steiner, Sums of OEIS-A232546, ResearchGate, 2017. - Ralf Steiner, Apr 04 2017

FORMULA

0 = a(n+2)*(a(n+1) - 42*a(n)) + 18*a(n+1)*(a(n+1) + 8*a(n)) for all n in Z.

a(n+2) = 54 * A000168(n). a(n) = 3^n * A002421(n). Convolution inverse of A115903.

a(n) = 6*(2*n-5)*a(n-1)/n. - R. J. Mathar, Nov 23 2014

G.f.: 1F0(-3/2;;12x). - R. J. Mathar, Aug 09 2015

For n>=2, a(n) = 4*3^(n+1)*(2*n-4)! / ((n-2)!*n!). - Vaclav Kotesovec, Apr 02 2017

Sum_{k>=0} a(k) / 12^k = 0. - Ralf Steiner, Apr 04 2017

EXAMPLE

G.f. = 1 - 18*x + 54*x^2 + 108*x^3 + 486*x^4 + 2916*x^5 + 20412*x^6 + ...
