This seems to convergent to a nice function.

But wait, first it *seems* to converge, however later it takes off. E.g. if I compute the coefficient of x, I get rounded to two significant digits (scroll down):

Code:

`n= 60 : 1.2`

n= 61 : 1.2

n= 62 : 1.2

n= 63 : 1.1

n= 64 : 1.2

n= 65 : 1.1

n= 66 : 1.2

n= 67 : 0.96

n= 68 : 1.7

n= 69 : -0.14

n= 70 : 4.5

n= 71 : -7.8

n= 72 : 25.

n= 73 : -64.

n= 74 : 180.

n= 75 : -500.

n= 76 : 1400.

n= 77 : -4100.

n= 78 : 12000.

n= 79 : -35000.

This is not a rounding error as I compute with fractions and do the rounding only for better visibility.
