COMMENTS

Is this constant transcendental?

Compare to the continued fraction expansions of sqrt(3) and 3*sqrt(3), which are related by a factor of 5: sqrt(3) = [1; 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, ...] and 3*sqrt(3) = [5; 5, 10, 5, 10, 5, 10, 5, 10, 5, 10, ...].

Further, let CF(x) denote the simple continued fraction expansion of x, then we have the related identities which hold for n >= 1:

(C1) CF( (4*n+1) * sqrt((n+1)/n) ) = (4*n+3) * CF( sqrt((n+1)/n) ),

(C2) CF( (2*n+1) * sqrt((n+2)/n) ) = (2*n+3) * CF( sqrt((n+2)/n) ).

(1) 4*t = [5*d(0); 5*d(1), 5*d(2), 5*d(3), 5*d(4), 5*d(5), ...],

(2) 4*t/5 = [d(0); 25*d(1), d(2), 25*d(3), d(4), 25*d(5), d(6), ...],

(3) 20*t = [25*d(0); d(1), 25*d(2), d(3), 25*d(4), d(5), 25*d(6), ...].

GENERATING METHOD.

Start with CF = [1] and repeat (PARI code):

t = (1/4)*contfracpnqn(5*CF)[1,1]/contfracpnqn(5*CF)[2,1]; CF = contfrac(t)

This method can be illustrated as follows.

t0 = [1] = 1;

t1 = (1/4)*[5] = [1; 4] = 5/4;

t2 = (1/4)*[5; 20] = [1; 3, 1, 4, 4] = 101/80;

t3 = (1/4)*[5; 15, 5, 20, 20] = [1; 3, 1, 3, 20, 5, 80] = 155905/123104;

t4 = (1/4)*[5; 15, 5, 15, 100, 25, 400] = [1; 3, 1, 3, 20, 3, 1, 3, 24, 1, 3, 6, 1600] = 5857775885/4625350304;

t5 = (1/4)*[5; 15, 5, 15, 100, 15, 5, 15, 120, 5, 15, 30, 8000] = [1; 3, 1, 3, 20, 3, 1, 3, 24, 1, 3, 3, 1, 1, 4, 1, 1, 3, 3, 1, 29, 3, 2, 1, 14, 1, 1, 7, 32000] = 1487626504292631625/1174642703809375904; ...

where this constant t equals the limit of the iterations of the above process.
