COMMENTS

Least x>0 such that sin(bx)=cos(cx) (and also sin(cx)=cos(bx)), where b=1 and c=pi/4; see the Mathematica program for a graph and A197682 for a discussion and guide to related sequences.

This number is the pressure drag coefficient for Kirchhoff flow past a plate, calculated by Kirchhoff (1969) for an infinitely long plate; see References. - Peter J. C. Moses and Clark Kimberling, Sep 07 2013
