COMMENTS

Let R denote a rectangle whose shape (i.e., length/width) is (1+sqrt(-3+4*sqrt(2)))/2.  R can be partitioned into squares and silver rectangles in a manner that matches the periodic continued fraction [1,r,1,r,...], where r is the silver ratio: 1+sqrt(2)=[2,2,2,2,2,...].  R can also be partitioned into squares so as to match the nonperiodic continued fraction [1,3,5,1,2,1,1,1,2,...] at A190180.  For details, see A188635.

The real value a-1 is the only invariant point of the complex-plane mapping M(c,z)=sqrt(c-sqrt(c+z)), with c = sqrt(2), and its only attractor, convergent from any starting complex-plane location. - Stanislav Sykora, Apr 29 2016
