Index entries for continued fractions for constants

Index entries for linear recurrences with constant coefficients, signature (1, -1, 1, -1, 1, -1, 1, 1, -1, 1, -1, 1, -1, 1, -1).

FORMULA

First seven terms are 0, 1, 2, 8, 3, 1, 1; then a(8k)=1, a(8k+1)=k, a(8k+2)=7, a(8k+3)=1, a(8k+4)=k, a(8k+5)=2, a(8k+6)=1, a(8k+7)=1. - Benoit Cloitre, Apr 08 2003

G.f.: x*(1+x+7*x^2-4*x^3+5*x^4-4*x^5+5*x^6-4*x^7+9*x^8-12*x^9-3*x^10-x^11-x^13-6*x^16+7*x^17+x^18) / ((1-x)^2*(1+x)*(1+x^2)^2*(1+x^4)^2). - Colin Barker, May 16 2016

EXAMPLE

0.679570457114761308840071867... = 0 + 1/(1 + 1/(2 + 1/(8 + 1/(3 + ...)))). - Harry J. Smith, May 10 2009
