COMMENTS

Edge length of a regular decagon with unit circumradius. - Stanislav Sykora, May 07 2014

The value a+0i is the only invariant point of the complex-plane endomorphism M(z)=sqrt(2-sqrt(2+z)), and also its unique attractor, with the iterations converging exponentially from any starting complex value. Hence the infinite radical formula. - Stanislav Sykora, Apr 29 2016
