Comments on asymptotics from Paul D. Hanna, Feb 05 2005:

Limit_{n->inf} log(a(n+1))/log(a(n)) = (sqrt(5)+1)/2 = 1.6180339887...

Limit_{n->inf} log(a(n))/((sqrt(5)+1)/2)^n = 0.471775871...

Limit_{n->inf} fraction( a(2n+2)/a(2n+1) ) = 0.9963258537736462872363456738414777019251922501451462595067...

Limit_{n->inf} fraction( a(2n+1)/a(2n) ) = 0.5781727423883458291832179527899399497969420087427440931499...
