COMMENTS

This constant appears in a historic problem posed by Adriaan van Roomen (Adrianus Romanus) in his Ideae mathematicae from 1593, solved by Vi├Ęte. See the Havil reference, problem 4, pp. 69-74. See also the comments, references and links  in A302711.

The present identity is R(45, 2*sin(Pi/675)) = 2*sin(Pi/15) = A272534 = 0.415823381635518..., with a special case of monic Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind, named R, given in A127672.
