 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,2 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. LINKS Robert G.
