COMMENTS

For more details on Blazys' expansions, see A233582.

Compared with simple continued fraction expansion for sqrt(e), this sequence starts soon growing very rapidly.

FORMULA

sqrt(e) = 1+1/(1+1/(1+1/(1+1/(5+5/(9+9/(17+17/(109+...))))))).

MATHEMATICA

BlazysExpansion[n_, mx_] := Block[{k = 1, x = n, lmt = mx + 1, s, lst = {}}, While[k < lmt, s = Floor[x]; x = 1/(x/s - 1); AppendTo[lst, s]; k++]; lst]; BlazysExpansion[Sqrt@E, 35] (* Robert G. Wilson v, May 22 2014 *)

PROG

(PARI) bx(x, nmax)={local(c, v, k); // Blazys expansion function

v = vector(nmax); c = x; for(k=1, nmax, v[k] = floor(c); c = v[k]/(c-v[k]); ); return (v); }

bx(exp(1/2), 100) // Execution; use high real precision
