COMMENTS

Density of 1's in Fibonacci word A003849.

Also decimal expansion of Sum_{n>=1} ((-1)^(n+1))*1/phi^n. - Michel Lagneau, Dec 04 2011

The Lambert series evaluated at this point is 0.8828541617125076... [see André-Jeannin]. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 28 2012

Because this equals 2 - phi, this is an integer in the quadratic number field Q(sqrt(5)). (Note that this is also sqrt(5 - 3*phi).) - Wolfdieter Lang, Jan 08 2018

When m >= 1, the equation m*x^m + (m-1)*x^(m-1) + ... + 2*x^2 + x - 1 = 0 has only one positive root, u(m) (say); then lim_{m->oo} u(m) = (3-sqrt(5))/2 (see Aubonnet). - Bernard Schott, May 12 2019

Cosine of the zenith angle at which a string should be cut so that a ball tied to one of its ends, set moving without friction around a vertical circle with the minimum speed in a uniform gravitational field, will then travel through the fixed center of the circle. - Stefano Spezia, Oct 25 2020

Algebraic number of degree 2 with minimal polynomial x^2 - 3*x + 1. The other root is 1 + phi = A104457. - Wolfdieter Lang, Aug 29 2022

FORMULA

Equals 1 - 1/phi = 2 - phi, with phi from A001622.

Equals A094874 - 1, or A079585 - 2, or the square of A094214.

Equals (5-sqrt(5))^2/20 = 1/phi^2 = 1/A104457. - Joost Gielen, Sep 28 2013 [corrected by Joerg Arndt, Sep 29 2013]

Equals (3-sqrt(5))/2. - Bernard Schott, May 12 2019
