COMMENTS
A root of the equation x^3 - 5*x^2 + 6*x - 1 = 0. - Arkadiusz Wesolowski, Jan 13 2016
The other two roots of this minimal polynomial of the present algebraic number (rho(7))^2, with rho(7) = 2*cos(Pi/7) = A160389 are (2*cos(3*Pi/7))^2 = (A255241)^2 and (2*cos(5*Pi/7))^2 = (-A255249)^2. - Wolfdieter Lang, Mar 30 2020

FORMULA
Equals (2*cos(Pi/7))^2 = (A160389)^2.
Equals 2 + i^(4/7) - i^(10/7). - Peter Luschny, Apr 04 2020
Let c = 2 + 2*cos(2*Pi/7). The linear fractional transformation z -> c - c/z has order 7, that is, z = c - c/(c - c/(c - c/(c - c/(c - c/(c - c/(c - c/z)))))). - Peter Bala, May 09 2024
