Hello Neil and seqfan.
I have computed a formula for A006154.
a(n) ~ sqrt(2)/2*(n-1)!/log(1+sqrt(2))^n
a(100) is about 162 digits long and the approximation is good to 56
digits. This is the principal term in the asymptotic expansion
of the n'th term in the series expansion of
1/(1-sinh(x)).
So the entry would be
%F A006154 a(n) ~ sqrt(2)/2*(n-1)!/log(1+sqrt(2))^n.
In this case, I could not use <equivalent> of Salvy because
of the singularity, but of course numerically this is
a workable example, the log(1+sqrt(2))^n part was found using the
Inverter.
