COMMENTS

lim_{n->infty} b(n)=sqrt(2) with geometric convergence since abs(b(n)-sqrt(2))<2*2^(-n/2)

FORMULA

a(n) satisfies the cubic recurrence : a(1)=1, a(2)=2, a(3)=3, a(4)=7, a(5)=32 and for n>=6 a(n)=a(n-2)^2*a(n-3)+a(n-1)*a(n-3)*a(n-4)

lim_{n->infty} b(n)=sqrt(2) with geometric convergence since abs(b(n)-sqrt(2))<2*2^(-n/2)
