Seqfans,
Is it known/trivial that:
(5) [x^(4n+2)] EllipticK(4x)^(-4n) = 0 for n>=1.
This statement (5) is equivalent to (4) given in prior email.
If (5) is true, it would imply that A172390(2n+1) = 0 for n>=1.
Thanks,
Paul

SeqFans,
Sequences A172390 and A172391 record 2 surprising observations.
Is there any reason why the following statements should be true?
(1) A172390(2n+1) = 0 for n>=1;
(2) A172391(2n+1) = 0 for n>=1.
Here is a fact that may be a big clue for (1):
(3) Sum_{n>=0} C(2n,n)^2*x^n = 1/AGM(1, (1-16x)^(1/2) )
where AGM is the arithmetic-geometric mean.
Statement (3) makes (1) equivalent to:
(4) [x^(2n+1)] AGM(1, (1-16x)^(1/2) )^(4n) = 0 for n>=1.
Can someone show that this (4) is true?
