%C W. Gawronski et al. in their paper - see ref. below - obtained the asymptotics for the Chebyshev-Stirling numbers. In the algebraic description of the respective "asymptotic coefficients" the number x = 2*log phi, where phi is the golden section, play the central role. - _Roman Witula_, Feb 02 2015

%C Also two times the Lévy measure for the continued fraction of the golden section, i.e., A202543/log(2) is the mean number of bits gained from the next convergent of the continued fraction representation. (See also Dan Lascu in links.) - _A.H.M. Smeets_, Jun 06 2018
