COMMENTS

This constant xi arises in the Davenport-Heilbronn zeta-function Z(s)=Sum_{k>=1} b(k)/k^s where b(k) is the 5-periodic sequence with period [1,xi,-xi,0]. Z satisfies a functional equation (like zeta) but does not satisfy RH. Some nontrivial zeros are off the critical line (see reference).

FORMULA

Equals (sqrt(10-2*sqrt(5))-2)/(sqrt(5)-1).

Equals (A001622-1)/(2*A019845+1). - R. J. Mathar, Apr 02 2009

Equals sqrt((5 + sqrt(5))/2) - (sqrt(5) + 1)/2 = A188593 - A001622. - Amiram Eldar, Jan 23 2022
