%F Also equals asinh(1/2).

%F Equals sqrt(5)/2 * Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n-1)/(n*C(2*n,n)). - _Seiichi Kirikami_, Aug 20 2011

%F Equals sqrt(5)/4*(5*(Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n-1)/C(2*n,n))-1). - _Jean-François Alcover_, Apr 29 2013

%F Also equals (125*C - 55) / (24*sqrt(5)), where C = Sum_{k>=1} (-1)^(k+1)*1/Cat(k), where Cat(k) = (2k)!/k!/(k+1)! = A000108(k) - k-th Catalan number. See Sep 01 2006 comment at ref. Mathematics in Russian. - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Dec 27 2013

%F Equals sqrt(5)/4 * Sum_{n>=0} (-1)^n/((2n+1)*C(2*n,n)). - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Dec 27 2013

%F Equals sqrt((Pi^2/6 - W)/3), where W = Sum_{n>=0} (-1)^n/((2n+1)^2*C(2*n,n)), attributed by Alexander Adamchuk to Ramanujan. See Sep 01 2006 comment at ref. Mathematics in Russian. - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Dec 27 2013

%F Equals lim_{j->infinity} Sum_{k=F(j)..F(j+1)-1} (1/k), where F = A000045, the Fibonacci sequence. Convergence is slow. For example: Sum_{k=21..33} (1/k) = 0.4910585.... - _Richard R. Forberg_, Aug 15 2014
