## Catalanization ## another reciprocal sum problem

ok we already know how to calculate how many rationals, $\mathbb{Q}$, exists in terms of the height function $h(a/b)=\max (|a|,|b|)$ $gcd(a,b)=1$

It turns out that the A171503  entry of the OEIS tells more…

meanwhile it is natural to ask for convergence of $1/3 + 1/7 + 1/15 + 1/23 + 1/31 + 1/47 + 1/71 + 1/87 + 1/111 + 1/127+...$

and for (non-) existence of a generating function…

The crescent sequence could be called Siehler’s numbers

## reciprocal Catalan numbers

the subject that gives the grade of B.Sc. to my ex-pupil and friend, was originated making a conjecture that in less than of a month we will know how to demonstrate the formula in

but we were even able of finding a generating function for them

Congratulations David! or $\frac{2\sqrt{4-x}(8+x)+12\sqrt{x}\arctan{\frac{\sqrt{x}}{\sqrt{4-x}}}}{\sqrt{(4-x)^5}}$
