FORMULA

c = Sum_{n>=1} 1/2^[n/log(2)] = Sum_{n>=1} [n*log(2)]/2^n, where [z]=floor(z).

EXAMPLE

c=0.85728238310340617751190330850973399759098831209314692225782429246...

PROG

(PARI) a(n)=local(t=log(2), x=sum(m=1, 10*(n+1), 1/2^floor(m/t))); floor(10^n*x)%10

(PARI) a(n)=local(t=log(2), x=sum(m=1, 10*(n+1), floor(m*t)/2^m)); floor(10^n*x)%10
