COMMENTS

rho_3 := +2*cos(5*Pi/5) is the negative zero of the minimal polynomial C(7, x) = x^3  x^2  2*x + 1 of the algebraic number rho(7) = 2*cos(Pi/7), the length ratio of the smaller diagonal and the side in the regular 7gon (heptagon). See A187360 and a link to the arXiv paper given there, eq. (20) for the zeros of C(n, x). The positive zeros are rho(7) and rho_2 = 2*cos(3*Pi/7) shown in A160389 and A255241.
Essentially the same as A231187 and A116425.  R. J. Mathar, Mar 14 2015
