%N Decimal expansion of a constant that appears in flux/diffusion problems with trapping surfaces.

%C The constant appears as a correction in effective radii of flux problems of particles undergoing certain random walks in one or three dimensions.

%C Also related to correction term to the asymptotics of sums of random numbers uniformly distributed on an interval (see Coffman et al., who also present a double-sum formula.)
