Asymptotics of a hypergeometric series/Taylor series coefficient.
Ryan, in the paper on Fourier proof for Arrow's thm there is a computation on the sum of squares of kth lavel f.c. which is maybe what you were looking for. |

I suppose we do not know if an entire function (or something close to entire) with such an intermediate growth function is possible, and also are such functions related to any mathematics. (Maybe they are related to formal groups.) |

Here is a nice link for the figure eight knot mathworld.wolfram.com/FigureEightKnot.html . The trefoil knot en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trefoil_knot is a basic example in knot theory. |

What precisely Is “Categorification”?
Moving from "Euler characteristic" to "homology" was mentioned as a basic example. Moving from "Betti numbers" to "homology groups" is claimed as an even better example of categorification but I do not understand this claim. |
