Amiram Eldar, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000

Amiram Eldar, Plot of a(n)/(n * log(log(n))) for n = 1..10000.

FORMULA

Does lim_{n->infinity} a(n)/(n * log(log(n))) = C = 2.XXX...?

EXAMPLE

For n=4, Sum_{k=1..n} 1/k! = 1/1! + 1/2! + 1/3! + 1/4! = 1/1 + 1/2 + 1/6 + 1/24 = 41/24 = 1 + 1/(1 + 1/(2 + 1/(2 + 1/3))) = CF[1;1,2,2,1], so a(4) = 5.

MATHEMATICA

lcf[f_] := Length[ContinuedFraction[f]]; lcf /@ Accumulate[Table[1/k!, {k, 1, 100}]] (* Amiram Eldar, Apr 30 2022 *)
