COMMENTS

The continued fraction (A121475) of this constant has large partial quotients: c = [2; 3, 42, 4, 4512412933881984, ...]. See the MathWorld link for more information regarding devil's staircase constants. The dual constant is: A121472 = Sum_{n>=1} 1/2^[log_2(e^n)] = Sum_{n>=1} [log(2^n)]/2^n.

FORMULA

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

EXAMPLE

c=2.3307240704500978473572726401780935386031486101438756503210824331667...

PROG

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

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