COMMENTS
Table 2 in chapter 7 of the preprint contains a typo: a(9) is not 725860. - R. J. Mathar, Mar 14 2015

FORMULA
There are simple formulas for the two bisections - see Dolinka et al.
a(2n-1) = A052612(2n-1) = A052616(2n-1) = A052849(2n-1) = A098558(2n-1) = A208529(2n+1). - Omar E. Pol, Mar 14 2015
Sum_{n>=1} 1/a(n) = (e^2+3)/(4*e) = 1/e + sinh(1)/2. - Amiram Eldar, Feb 02 2023
MAPLE
