COMMENTS

Decimal expansion of psi, the unique solution on (0,Pi) of sin(psi)-psi*cos(psi) = Pi/2, an auxiliary constant used in the Hall-Tenenbaum inequality applied to real multiplicative functions. - Jean-François Alcover, Sep 05 2014

FORMULA

x := x-((sin(x)-cos(x)*x-Pi/2)/(sin(x)*x)).

Equals 2*acos(A133731/2).

EXAMPLE

A133731 = cos(1.9056957293.../2)*2.

MATHEMATICA

psi = x /. FindRoot[Sin[x] - x*Cos[x] == Pi/2, {x, 2}, WorkingPrecision -> 102]; RealDigits[psi] // First (* Jean-François Alcover, Sep 05 2014 *)
