COMMENTS

Equivalence to the recurrence formula needs formal proof. This C.F. converges to 0.525135276160981.. for w=1. A conjecture by Ramanujan puts this equal to -1+1/(Sqrt[E Pi/2]-Sum[1/(2k-1)!!,{k,1,Infinity}]. Row sums equal A059480.

FORMULA

b[0]=1; b[1]=w; b[n] = w b[n-1]+(n+1) b[n-2] (conjecture).

EXAMPLE

The numerator of 1/(w+2/(w+3/(w+4/(w+5/(w+6/w))))) equals 57w + 18w^3 + w^5.
