Chudnovsky, David (ed.) et al., Additive number theory. Festschrift in honor of the sixtieth birthday of Melvyn B. Nathanson. New York, NY: Springer (ISBN 978-0-387-37029-3/hbk; 978-0-387-68361-4/ebook). 331-340 (2010).
The author use the binary expansion of an integer to derive linear, quadratic, and cubic analogs foe Vacca’s rational series for gamma. Open problems on further extensions of the results are discussed, and a history of the formulas is given.
