COMMENTS

This constant has a nice continued fraction expansion (i.e. only 1 and 2 occur). C arises when looking for a sequence b(n) such that : b(1)=0, b(n+1) is the smallest integer > b(n) such that the continued fraction for 1/2^ b(1)+1/2^b(2)+...+1/2^b(n+1) contains only 1's or 2's. Because b(n)=2^n-1 and C= sum(k>=0,1/2^b(k)).

sum(1/2^(2^k - 1), k=0 to infinity) = 2*sum(1/2^(2^k), k=0 to infinity) - Harry J. Smith, May 09 2009
