Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

This is the sequence of integers z^n g_n for n=0,2,4,6,... where g_n are the coefficients in the Chebyshev polynomial expansion of the density of states of the body-centered cubic lattice (z=8), g(w) = 1 / (Pi*sqrt(1-w^2)) * Sum_{n>=0} (2-delta_n) g_n T_n(w). Here |w| <= 1 and delta is the Kronecker delta.

The Chebyshev coefficients, g_n, are related to the number of walks on the lattice that return to the origin, W_n, as g_n = Sum_{k=0..n} a_{nk} z^{-k} W_k, where z is the coordination number of the lattice and a_{nk} are the coefficients of Chebyshev polynomials such that T_n(x) = Sum_{k=0..n} a_{nk} x^k.

For the bcc lattice (z=8), the even Chebyshev coefficients can be expressed in closed form in terms of the hypergeometric function pFq, as z^{2N} g_{2N} = (1 + delta_N) * 2^(2N-1) Binomial(2N,N)^3 * 4F3 (-N, -N, -N, -N; 1-2N, 1/2-N, 1/2-N; 1).
