COMMENTS

The hyperbolas y^2x^2=1 and xy=1 meet at (1/c,c) and (1/c,c), where c=sqrt(golden ratio); see the Mathematica program for a graph; see A189339 for hyperbolas meeting at (c,1/c) and (c,1/c).

This number is the eccentricity of an ellipse inscribed in a golden rectangle.  JeanFrançois Alcover, Sep 03 2015
c/sqrt(1) is the limit of Pi(a;n)/2 := a^n * sqrt(a  f(a;n)) with f(a;0) = 0, and f(a;n) = sqrt(a + f(a;n1)) for n >= 1, if one takes a = 1. For a=2 this gives Viète's formula for Pi/2 (see A019669).  Wolfdieter Lang, Jul 06 2018
