When (n) = pi or a multiple of pi. 4~(in(( 2+2^n)/(2^n 2)^2^n)) 6~(in(( 3+3^n)/(3^n 3)^3^n)) 8~(in(( 4+4^n)/(4^n 4)^4^n)) 10~(in(( 5+5^n)/(5^n 5)^5^n)) 12~(in(( 6+6^n)/(6^n 6)^6^n)) 14~(in(( 7+7^n)/(7^n 7)^7^n)) etc. A more rapid convergence happens as each even get larger and with more pi multiples of (n).
