COMMENTS

Let k = .412454..., then A085396(n)/A085394(n) [i.e. (numerator + denominator)/(numerator)] converges upon 3.424512...as n approaches infinity, where 3.424...= (k+1)/k. A085396(n)/A085395(n) [i.e. (numerator + denominator)/(denominator)], converges upon k+1, = 1.412454...Check: A085396(6)/A085394(6) = 363/106 = 3.4245...; while A085396(6)/A085395(6) = 393/257 = 1.41245... The constants (k+1) and (k+1)/k are generators for the Beatty pairs for the Thue-Morse constant, where the pairs are [(n*(k+1), (n*(k+1)/k], n = 1,2,3..

FORMULA

a(n) = A085394(n) + A085395(n) = numerator and denominator sums for convergents of .412454..., the convergents being 1/2, 2/5, 5/12, 7/17, 33/80, 106/257, 563/1365, 1232/2987, 1795/4352, 8412/20395...

EXAMPLE

Convergents to the Thue-Morse constant .4124540336...are derived from continued fraction form shown in A014572, starting with A014572(1) = 2; then .412454...= [2, 2, 2, 1, 4, 3, 5, 2, 1...] (A014572). Example [2] = 1/2, [2,2,] = 2/5, [2,2,2] = 5/12 and so on.

MATHEMATICA

mt = 0; Do[ mt = ToString[mt] <> ToString[(10^(2^n) - 1)/9 - ToExpression[mt]], {n, 0, 7}]; d = RealDigits[ N[ ToExpression[mt], 2^7]][[1]]; a = 0; Do[ a = a + N[ d[[n]]/2^(n + 1), 100], {n, 1, 2^7}]; f[n_] := FromContinuedFraction[ ContinuedFraction[a, n]]; Table[ Numerator[ f[n]] + Denominator[ f[n]], {n, 2, 27}]
