 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS The 62 trailing terms are repeated infinitely. This is just one of an infinite set of continued fractions, related to the golden ratio, and more specifically to the square root of 125, 12500, 1250000... Taking phi*10^k, one can look at sqrt(125) + 5, sqrt(12500) + 50 (this sequence, sqrt(1250000) + 500, etc. This is not an efficient way to calculate phi - Franklin T. Adams-Watters, Sep 10 2011. Periodic with a period of length 62, starting right after the initial term. Moreover, the sequence is symmetric when any 54 or 222 is taken as central value (cf. formula). - M. F.
