COMMENTS

This constant is the average value of A051903. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Oct 30 2012

There are no 9's in the first 50 digits after the decimal point. Then, suddenly, it goes 909999. - Bobby Jacobs, Aug 13 2017

Named after the Canadian-American mathematician Ivan Morton Niven (1915 - 1999). - Amiram Eldar, Aug 19 2020

FORMULA

Equals 1 + Sum_{j>=2} 1-(1/zeta(j)).

Equals 1 - Sum_{k>=2} mu(k)/(k*(k-1)), where mu is the Möbius function (A008683) (Anderson, 1975; Sinha, 2006). - Amiram Eldar, Aug 19 2020

EXAMPLE

1.7052111401...

MATHEMATICA

rd[n_] := rd[n] = RealDigits[ N[1 + Sum[1 - 1/Zeta[j], {j, 2, 2^n}] , 105]][[1]]; rd[n = 4]; While[rd[n] =!= rd[n-1], n++]; rd[n] (* Jean-François Alcover, Oct 25 2012 *)
