COMMENTS

Let c(n) be defined as the smallest solution to sin(x) = sin(x^n); then lim_{n -> infinity} c(n) = C = 2.36338112904... = w004 in Plouffe's inverter.

FORMULA

Let x = (3*(45*Pi+sqrt(3*(4+675*Pi^2))))^(1/3) then the constant is (2^(1/3)*x^2-6)/(3*2^(2/3)*x). - Peter Luschny, Mar 12 2018

MATHEMATICA

Root[#^3 + # - 5*Pi&, 1] // RealDigits[#, 10, 105]& // First (* Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Mar 04 2013 *)
