A239225 Denominator of 2n/v(n)^2, where v(1) = 0, v(2) = 1, and v(n) = v(n-1)/(n-2) + v(n-2) for n >= 3. (Limit of 2n/v(n)^2 is Pi.) 2

EXAMPLE

Let w(n) = 2n/v(n)^2.  The first 7 values of w are 4, 6, 32/9, 40/9, 256/75, 896/225, 4096/1225, with approximations 4., 6., 3.55556, 4.44444, 3.41333, 3.98222, 3.34367; w(1000) = 3.14316..., w(10000) = 3.14175..., w(20000) = 3.14167... .

MAPLE

v:= proc(n) v(n):= `if`(n<3, n-1, v(n-1)/(n-2)+v(n-2)) end:

a:= n-> denom(2*n/v(n)^2):

seq(a(n), n=2..30); # Alois P. Heinz, Mar 12 2014

MATHEMATICA

z = 40; v[1] = 0; v[2] = 1; v[n_] := v[n] = v[n - 1]/(n - 2) + v[n - 2]

u = Join[{1}, Table[2 n/v[n]^2, {n, 2, z}]];

t1 = Numerator[u]   (* A239224 *)

t2 = Denominator[u] (* A239225 *)
