COMMENTS

1 + sqrt(3) is the length of the minimal Steiner network that connects the four vertices of a unit square. - Lekraj Beedassy, May 02 2008

This is the case n = 12 in the identity (Gamma(1/n)/Gamma(3/n))*(Gamma((n-1)/n)/Gamma((n-3)/n)) = 1 + 2*cos(2*Pi/n). - Bruno Berselli, Dec 14 2012

Equals n + n/(n + n/(n + n/(n + ...))) for n = 2. - Stanislav Sykora, Jan 23 2014

A non-optimal solution to the problem of finding the length of shortest fence that protects privacy of a square garden [Kawohl]. Cf. A256965. - N. J. A. Sloane, Apr 14 2015
