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 a1 is the only invariant point of the complexplane mapping M(c,z)=sqrt(csqrt(c+z)), with c = sqrt(2), and its only attractor, convergent from any starting complexplane location.  Stanislav Sykora, Apr 29 2016
