COMMENTS

This constant is the limit of the logarithm expected order of a random permutation of length n, divided by sqrt(n/log n). In other words, log(A060014(n)/n!) ~ c sqrt(n/log n) where c is this constant. Stong improves the error term to O(sqrt(n) log log n/log n). - Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 06 2014
