COMMENTS

A geometric realization of this number is the ratio of length to width of a metagolden rectangle. See A188635 for details and continued fraction.  Clark Kimberling, Apr 06 2011
This number is the asymptotic limit of the ratio of consecutive terms of the sequence of the number of Khalimskycontinuous functions with fourpoint codomain. See the FORMULA section of A131935 for details. (Cf. Samieinia 2010.)  Geoffrey Caveney, Apr 17 2014
This number is the largest zero of the polynomial z^4  z^3  3*z^2 + z + 1. (Cf. Evans, Hollmann, Krattenthaler and Xiang 1999, p. 107.)  Geoffrey Caveney, Apr 17 2014
Calling this number mu, log(mu) = asinh(phi/2).  Geoffrey Caveney, Apr 21 2014

FORMULA

(phi + sqrt(phi^2 + 4))/2.
Also, (1/4)*(1 + sqrt(5) + sqrt(H)), where H = 22 + 2*sqrt(5). (corrected by Jonathan Sondow, Apr 18 2014).
phi*(1 + sqrt(7  2*sqrt(5)))/2.  Geoffrey Caveney, Apr 19 2014
exp(asinh(cos(Pi/5))).  Geoffrey Caveney, Apr 22 2014
cos(Pi/5) + sqrt(1+cos(Pi/5)^2).  Geoffrey Caveney, Apr 23 2014
