COMMENTS

Standard normal distribution taken at all integers x from -infinity to +infinity.

Not only is this constant quite close to 1/tanh(pi^2) (difference is about 1.43*10^-17), but it is even closer if the second term of its continued fraction, 186895766.612113..., is reduced by 1/2 (the difference then decreases to about 10^-34).

The continued fraction begins: 1, 186895766, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 2, 2, 1, 3, 1, 4, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 5, 4, 1, 6, 1, 5, 8, 1, 1, 3, 1, 44, 3, 7, 31, 2, 5, 1, 1, 5, 1, 5, 5334, 1, ... - Robert G. Wilson v, Dec 30 2007

See A084304 for cont.frac.(1/tanh(pi^2)) = [1, 186895766, 8, 1, 11, 2, 3, ...] - M. F. Hasler, Oct 24 2009
