COMMENTS

Only first term differs from the decimal expansion of Phi.

Zelo extends work of D. Roy by showing that the square of the golden ratio is the optimal exponent of approximation by algebraic numbers of degree 4 with bounded denominator and trace. Jonathan Vos Post, Mar 02 2009 (Cf. last sentence in the Zelo reference. - Joerg Arndt, Jan 04 2014)

Hawkes asks: "What two numbers are those whose product, difference of their squares, and the ratio or quotient of their cubes, are all equal to each other?". - Charles R Greathouse IV, Dec 11 2012

This is the case n=10 in (Gamma(1/n)/Gamma(3/n))*(Gamma((n-1)/n)/Gamma((n-3)/n)) = 1+2*cos(2*Pi/n). - Bruno Berselli, Dec 14 2012

An algebraic integer of degree 2, with minimal polynomial x^2 - 3x + 1. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 12 2014

FORMULA

Equals 2+A094214 = 1+A001622. - R. J. Mathar, May 19 2008

Satisfies these three equations: x-sqrt(x)-1 = 0; x-1/sqrt(x)-2 = 0; x^2-3*x+1 = 0. - Richard R. Forberg, Oct 11 2014
