COMMENTS

This is the limit x of the ratio N(n+1)/N(n) for n -> infinity of the Narayana sequence N(n) = A000930(n). The real root of x^3 - x^2 - 1. See the formula section. - Wolfdieter Lang, Apr 24 2015

This is the fourth smallest Pisot number. - Iain Fox, Oct 13 2017

Sometimes called the supergolden ratio or Narayana's cows constant, and denoted by the symbol psi. - Ed Pegg Jr, Feb 01 2019

FORMULA

The real root of x^3 - x^2 - 1. - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Oct 12 2006

The only real irrational root of x^4-x^2-x-1 (-1 is also a root). [Nahim]

(2/3)*cos( (1/3)*arccos(29/2) ) + 1/3.

Equals 1 + A088559.

Equals (1/6)*(116+12*sqrt(93))^(1/3) + 2/(3*(116+12*sqrt(93))^(1/3)) + 1/3. - Vaclav Kotesovec, Dec 18 2014

Equals 1/A263719. - Alois P. Heinz, Apr 15 2018
