COMMENTS

Chern and Vaaler's estimate of the number M(d,T) of integer polynomials of degree at most d, and of Mahler's measure at most T, is M(d,T) = V(d+1)*T^(d+1) + O(T^d) as T -> infinity, where d is fixed and V(d+1) is the volume of the d-th Chern-Vaaler star body, which is nonconvex and symmetric. For the "monic slice" of the star body, see A288756, A288757, A288758.

FORMULA

Numerator of 2^(d + 1) * (d + 1)^e * Product_{k=1..e}((2*k)^(d - 2*k)/(2*k + 1)^(d + 1 - 2*k)) where e = floor((d-1)/2).

Floor(a(n)/A286524(n)) = A286522(n).

MATHEMATICA

v[d_] := (e = Floor[(d - 1)/2]; 2^(d + 1) (d + 1)^e Product[(2 k)^(d - 2 k)/(2 k + 1)^(d + 1 - 2 k), {k, 1, e}]); Table[ Numerator[v[d]], {d, 0, 18}]
