FORMULA

From Robert Israel, Oct 08 2017: (Start)

c(n) = floor((-1)^n*3*a(n)^2/(q(n)*(a(n)^3-2*q(n)^3)) - q(n-1)/q(n)),

a(n+1) = c(n)*a(n) + a(n-1),

q(n+1) = c(n)*q(n) + q(n-1), with a(0) = 1, c(0) = 1, q(0) = 0, a(1) = 1, q(1) = 1. (End)

MAPLE

Digits := 60: E := 2^(1/3); convert(evalf(E), confrac, 50, 'cvgts'): cvgts;

# Alternate:

N:= 100: # to get a(1) to a(N)

c[0] := 1: a[0] := 1: q[0] := 0: a[1] := 1: q[1] := 1:

for n from 1 to N do

  c[n] := floor((-1)^n*3*a[n]^2/(q[n]*(a[n]^3-2*q[n]^3)) - q[n-1]/q[n]);

  a[n+1] := c[n]*a[n] + a[n-1];

  q[n+1] := c[n]*q[n] + q[n-1];

od: seq(a[i], i=1..N); # Robert Israel, Oct 08 2017
