FORMULA

This constant may be defined by the following expressions.

(1) B = Sum_{n>=1} (-1)^(n-1) / (2^n - 1)^n.

(2) B = Sum_{n>=1} (2^n - 1)^(n-1) / 2^(n^2).

(3) B = Sum_{n>=1} A303506(n)/2^n where A303506(n) = Sum_{d|n} binomial(n/d-1, d-1) * (-1)^(d-1) for n>=1.

EXAMPLE

Constant B = 0.891784622610953349715890136060239421022216970366139189336822360...

This constant equals the sum of the following infinite series.

(1) B = 1 - 1/3^2 + 1/7^3 - 1/15^4 + 1/31^5 - 1/63^6 + 1/127^7 - 1/255^8 + 1/511^9 - 1/1023^10 + 1/2047^11 - 1/4095^12 + 1/8191^13 - 1/16383^14 + ...

Also,

(2) B = 1/2 + 3/2^4 + 7^2/2^9 + 15^3/2^16 + 31^4/2^25 + 63^5/2^36 + 127^6/2^49 + 255^7/2^64 + 511^8/2^81 + 1023^9/2^100 + 2047^10/2^121 + 4095^11/2^144 + ...

Expressed in terms of powers of 1/2, we have

(3) B = 1/2 + 1/2^2 + 1/2^3 + 0/2^4 + 1/2^5 - 1/2^6 + 1/2^7 - 2/2^8 + 2/2^9 - 3/2^10 + 1/2^11 - 1/2^12 + 1/2^13 - 5/2^14 + 7/2^15 - 7/2^16 + 1/2^17 + 3/2^18 + 1/2^19 - 12/2^20 + 16/2^21 - 9/2^22 + ... + A303506(n)/2^n + ...
