COMMENTS

A270121 is defined by the following recurrence: if A270121(n)=x(n) then x(n+1)*x(n-1)=x(n)^2*(1+n*x(n)) for n>=1, with x(1)=7, x(2)=112; and for A270124, if A270124(n)=y(n) then y(0)=2 and y(n)=x(n+1)/x(n) for n>=1. Both of these sequences appear in the continued fraction expansion of this number, which is transcendental.

FORMULA

The continued fraction expansion takes the form

[0; 1, 6, A270124(0), A270121(1), ..., n*A270124(n-1), A270121(n), (n+1)*A270124(n), A270121(n+1), ...].

EXAMPLE

0.86607390873015929971... = 6/A270121(1) + Sum_{n>=2} 1/A270121(n) = 6/7 + 1/112 + 1/403200 + 1/1755760043520000 + ... = [0; 1, 6, 2, 7, 32, 112, 10800, 403200, 17418254400, ...] = [0; 1, 6, A270124(0), A270121(1), 2*A270124(1), A270121(2), 3*A270124(2), A270121(3), 4*A270124(3), ...] (continued fraction).
