COMMENTS

Let b(n) = Sum_{k=0..n} (2^k * (k!)^2)/(2k + 1)!. Then:

b(n) = 1 + 1/3 * (1 + 2/5 * (1 + … (1 + n/(2n+1)))) = A087547(n+1)/A001147(n+1).

lim n -> infinity b(n) = Pi/2.

FORMULA

a(n) = numerator(Sum_{k=0..n} (2^k)/A002457(k)).

EXAMPLE

b(0) = 1, so a(0) = 1.

b(1) = 4/3, so a(1) = 4.

b(2) = 22/15, so a(2) = 22.

b(3) = 32/21, so a(3) = 32.

b(4) = 488/315, so a(4) = 488.

PROG

(PARI) a(n) = numerator(sum(k=0, n, (2^k * (k!)^2)/(2*k + 1)!)); \\ Michel Marcus, Oct 22 2016
