COMMENTS

The denominators are given in A101628.
Second member (m=3) of a family defined in A101028.
The limit s=lim(s(n),n>infty) with the s(n) defined below equals 8*sum(Zeta(2*k+1)/3^(2*k),k=1..infty) with Euler's (or Riemann's) Zeta function. This limit is 12*(log(3)1) = 1.18334746...; see the AbramowitzStegun (given in A101028) reference p. 259, eq. 6.3.15 with z=1/3 together with p. 258.

FORMULA

a(n)=numerator(s(n)) with s(n)=24*sum(1/((3*k1)*(3*k)*(3*k+1)), k=1..n).


EXAMPLE

s(3)= 24*(1/(2*3*4)+ 1/(5*6*7) + 1/(8*9*10)) = 241/210, hence a(3)=241 and A101628(3)=210.
