COMMENTS

coth(x) = (e^x + e^(-x))/(e^x - e^(-x)).

Because the continued fraction for Coth[1] is all positive odd numbers in sequence, the second Mathematica program below also generates the sequence. - Harvey P. Dale, Oct 15 2011

By the Lindemann-Weierstrass theorem, this constant is transcendental. - Charles R Greathouse IV, May 14 2019
