COMMENTS

Let R denote a rectangle whose shape (i.e., length/width) is (1 + x + sqrt(14+10x))/4, where x=sqrt(5)).  This rectangle can be partitioned into golden rectangles and squares in a manner that matches the periodic continued fraction [r,1,r,1,r,1,r,1,...]. It can also be partitioned into squares so as to match the nonperiodic continued fraction [2,3,6,3,...] at A189971. For details, see A188635.

Decimal expansion of sqrt(r + r*sqrt(r + r*sqrt(r + ...))), where r = (1 + sqrt(5))/2 = golden ratio. - Ilya Gutkovskiy, Aug 24 2015

A quartic integer. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Aug 29 2015
