COMMENTS

The tetranacci constant corresponds to the Golden Section in a quadripartite division 1 = u_1 + u_2 + u_3 + u_4 of a unit line segment, i.e., if 1/u_1 = u_1/u_2 = u_2/u_3 = u_3/u_4 = c, c is the tetranacci constant. - Seppo Mustonen, Apr 19 2005

The other 3 polynomial roots of 1+x+x^2+x^3-x^4 are -0.77480411321543385... and the complex-conjugated pair -0.07637893113374572508475 +- i * 0.814703647170386526841... - R. J. Mathar, Oct 25 2008

The continued fraction expansion starts 1, 1, 12, 1, 4, 7, 1, 21, 1, 2, 1, 4, 6, 1, 10, 1, 2, 2, 1, 7, 1, 1,... - R. J. Mathar, Mar 09 2012

For n>=4, round(c^prime(n)) == 1 (mod 2*prime(n)). Proof in Shevelev link. - Vladimir Shevelev, Mar 21 2014
