COMMENTS

The square of this constant, C^2 = 1.6180339472264..., is very close to the Golden Ratio Phi (A001622).
This constant is about 3% less than Mills's constant, 1.306377883863..., (A051021).
Since there is always a prime between an integer and its square, this constant should satisfy the same criteria as does Mills's constant (A051021).
This constant, C, produces A059785.
