Yes, Maple syntax changed (quite a few years ago) in that "." which used
to be a concatenation operator for names is now used for multiplication of
Matrices and Vectors. The concatenation operator is now "||".
I changed all occurrences of . to || and the result now agrees with the
current entries. I'll edit the entry, and add a few more values (up to
a(18).
Cheers,
Robert
