%N Decimal expansion of cos(Pi/(1+phi)), where phi is the golden ratio.

%C cos(Pi/(1+phi)) is the first term in the identity:

%C cos(Pi/(1+phi))+cos(Pi/phi)=0 which when converted to the exponential form gives: e^(i*Pi/(1+phi))+e^(-i*Pi/(1+phi))+e^(i*Pi/phi)+e^(-i*Pi/phi)=0. In this form it is known as the phi identity because it combines the golden ratio phi with the five fundamental mathematical constants Pi, e, i, 1, 0 that are found in Euler's identity e^(i*Pi) + 1 = 0.
