In 1978, Apery has given sequences of rational approximations to $\zeta(2)$ and $\zeta(3)$ yielding the irrationality of each of these numbers. One of the key ingredient of Apery's proof are second-order difference equations with polynomial coefficients satisfied by numerators and denominators of the above approximations. Recently, a similar second-order difference equation for $\zeta(4)$ has been discovered. The note contains a possible generalization of the above results for the number $\zeta… Expand
A single parameter Hermite–Padé series representation for Apéry’s constant
Inspired by the results of Rhin and Viola (2001), the purpose of this work is to elaborate on a series representation for $\zeta \left( 3\right)$ which only depends on one single integer parameter.Expand
Recurrence Relations and the Algebraic Irrationality of Ζ(3)
We apply the theory of disconjugate linear recurrence relations to the study of irrational quantities in number theory. In particular, we show that there exists a four-term real linear recurrenceExpand
