COMMENTS

Continued fraction expansion of 3+2*sqrt(3) is A010696 preceded by 6.
a(n) = A010469(n) for n > 1.
Largest radius of three circles tangent to a circle of radius 1.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Jan 14 2013
For a spinning black hole the phase transition to positive specific heat happens at a point governed by 2*sqrt(3)3 (according to a discussion on John Baez's blog), and not at the golden ratio as claimed by Paul Davis.  Peter Luschny, Mar 02 2013
In particular: a black hole with J > (2*sqrt(3)3) Gm^2/c has positive specific heat, and negative specific heat if J is less, where J is its angular momentum, m is its mass, G is the gravitational constant, and c is the speed of light. For a solar mass black hole, this is 4.08 * 10^41 jouleseconds or a rotation every 1.61 days with the sun's inertia.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Sep 20 2013
