COMMENTS

See A202537 for a guide to related sequences. The Mathematica program includes a graph.

Archimedes's-like scheme: set p(0) = 1/(2*sqrt(5)), q(0) = 1/4; p(n+1) = 2*p(n)*q(n)/(p(n)+q(n)) (arithmetic mean of reciprocals, i.e., 1/p(n+1) = (1/p(n) + 1/q(n))/2), q(n+1) = sqrt(p(n+1)*q(n)) (geometric mean, i.e., log(q(n+1)) = (log(p(n+1)) + log(q(n)))/2), for n >= 0. The error of p(n) and q(n) decreases by a factor of approximately 4 each iteration, i.e., approximately 2 bits are gained by each iteration. Set r(n) = (2*q(n) + p(n))/3, the error decreases by a factor of approximately 16 for each iteration, i.e., approximately 4 bits are gained by each iteration. For a similar scheme see also A244644. - A.H.M. Smeets, Jul 12 2018
