COMMENTS

Besicovitch shows that 0.149162536..., this sequence interpreted as a constant, is 10normal.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Oct 04 2008
The continued fraction of this sequence interpreted as a constant (0.149162536...) displays behavior similar to that of Champernowne's constant, with huge coefficients becoming unbounded: the 47th coefficient has 39 digits, the 103rd coefficient has 178 digits, the 289th coefficient is greater than 10^712, etc.  John M. Campbell, Jun 25 2011
Position of record terms of the continued fraction: 1, 2, 14, 18, 47, 103, 289, 831, 2215, 5801, 14167, 33339, 76595, 174815, 391749, ..., ; Digital length of the record terms: 1, 1, 1, 2, 39, 178, 712, 2637, 9577, 33986, 119198, 413749, 1424714, 4872958, 16572040, ..., .
