COMMENTS

This sequence is also the decimal expansion of ((1+sqrt(5))/2)^3. - Mohammad K. Azarian, Apr 14 2008

This is the length/width ratio of a 4-extension rectangle; see A188640 for definitions.  [Clark Kimberling, Apr 10 2011]

Its continued fraction is [4, 4, ...] (see A040002). - Robert G. Wilson v, Apr 10 2011

lim n -> infinity F(n+3)/F(n) = lim n -> infinity 1 + 2*F(n+1)/F(n) = 2 + sqrt(5), with F(n) = A000045(n). [Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Mar 11 2012]

Sum{n = 1 to infinity,  n/phi^n} = phi/(phi-1)^2 = phi^3. - Richard R. Forberg, Jun 29 2014

FORMULA

2 plus the constant in A002163. [R. J. Mathar, Sep 02 2008]

Equals 3 + 4*sin(Pi/10) = 1 + 4*cos(Pi/5) = 1 + 4*sin(3*Pi/10) = 3 + 4*cos(2*Pi/5) = 1 + csc(Pi/10). [Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Mar 11 2012]

Equals exp(arcsinh(2)), since arcsinh(x) = log(x+sqrt(x^2+1)). - Stanislav Sykora, Nov 01 2013
