COMMENTS

According to the McLaughlinWyshinski paper, Tasoev proposed continued fractions of the form [a0;a,...,a,a^2,...,a^2,a^3,...,a^3,...], where a0 >= 0, a >= 2 and m >= 1 are integers and each power of a occurs m times. This sequence is for the minimal values a0 = 0, a = 2 and m = 1. Komatsu "derived a closed form for the general case (m >= 1, arbitrary)" and the expression given in (1.2) (where a0=0 and m=1) of the linked paper and which is used in the second PARI/GP program below.
