That page gives the number I calculated numerically. I was wondering if there was a closed form formula for that number.

Hmm, see this WMW entry, equation (17). But it is a beast (to me, anyway). The references may be of interest too, but I did not check.

Okay. I may have to brush up on some of my arithmetic to grok that equation. Frankly, it hadn’t occurred to me how beastly it could be.
