COMMENTS

The corresponding denominators are given in A294827.

For the general case V(m,r;n) = Sum_{k=0..n} 1/((k + 1)*(m*k + r)) = (1/(m - r))*Sum_{k=0..n} (m/(m*k + r) - 1/(k+1)), for r = 1, ..., m-1 and m = 2, 3, ..., and their limits see a comment in A294512. Here [m,r] = [5,2].

The limit of the series is V(5,2) = lim_{n -> oo} V(5,2;n) = ((5/2)*log(5) - (2*ph-1)*(log(phi) - (Pi/5)*sqrt(7-4*phi)))/6, with the golden section phi:= (1 + sqrt(5))/2. The value is 0.661389626561... given by (1/2)*A244639.

In the Koecher reference v_5(2) =  (3/5)*V(5,2) = 0.39683377593671665701 ...is given as (1/4)*log(5) - (1/(2*sqrt(5)))*log((1 + sqrt(5))/2) + (Pi/10)*sqrt((5 - 2*sqrt(5))/5).

FORMULA

a(n) = numerator(V(5,2;n)) with V(5,2;n) = Sum_{k=0..n} 1/((k + 1)*(5*k + 2)) = Sum_{k=0..n} 1/A135706(k+1) = (1/3)*Sum_{k=0..n} (1/(k + 2/5) - 1/(k+1)) = (-Psi(2/5) + Psi(n+7/5) - (gamma + Psi(n+2)))/3 with the digamma function Psi and the Euler-Mascheroni constant gamma = -Psi(1) from A001620.

EXAMPLE

The rationals V(5,2;n), n >= 0, begin: 1/2, 4/7, 151/252, 1315/2142, 36698/58905, 667109/1060290, 10749479/16964640, 399851303/627691680, 401511863/627691680, 18933826729/29501508960, 246810236317/383519616480, ...

V(5,2;10^6) = 0.6613894266 (Maple, 10 digits) to be compared with 0.6613896266 giving the 10 digit value of V(5,2) from (1/2)*A244649.
