COMMENTS

A geometric realization of this number is the ratio of length to width of a meta-golden 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 Khalimsky-continuous functions with four-point 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

MAPLE

Digits:=100: evalf((1+sqrt(5))*(1+sqrt(7-2*sqrt(5)))/4); # Wesley Ivan Hurt, Apr 22 2014
