A128837 Numerator of the continued fraction convergents of the decimal concatenation of the natural numbers. 0

COMMENTS
The 15th convergent breaks down at number 16 so a 24-digit ratio gives 24 digits accuracy. The 16th convergent breaks down at the 97th number. It is amazing that a 24-digit ratio gives 186 digits of accuracy in the expansion!

FORMULA
The natural numbers 0,1,2,3,... are concatenated and then preceded by a decimal point to create the fraction N = .0123456789101112131415... . This number is then evaluated with n=0, m=steps to iterate, x = N, a(0)=floor(N) using the loop: do a(n)=floor(x) x=1/(x-a(n)) n=n+1 loop until n=m.
EXAMPLE
The 15th convergent 36686725011/2971624750499 = 0.01234567891011121314151610314942472616...
The 16th convergent 60499999499/4900500000000 = 0.0123456789101112131415161718192021222324252627282930313233343536373839404142\
