%N Decimal expansion of e + sqrt(1+e^2).

%C The shape of a rectangle WXYZ, denoted by [WXYZ], is defined by length/width: [WXYZ]=max{|WX|/|YZ|, |YZ|/|WX|}. Consider the following configuration of rectangles AEFD, EBCF, ABCD, where AEFD is not a square:

%C D................F....C

%C .......................

%C .......................

%C .......................

%C A................E....B

%C Let r=[AEFD]. The r-extension rectangle of AEFD is here introduced as the rectangle ABCD for which [AEFD]=[EBCF] and |AE|<>|EB|. That is, AEFD has the prescribed shape r, and AEFD and EBCF are similar without being congruent.

%C We extend the definition of r-extension rectangle to the case that 0<r<1; in this case, [AEFD]=1/r and ABCD is defined as above.

%C Then for all r>0, it is easy to prove that [ABCD] = (r+sqrt(4+r^2))/2.

%C This here is the length/width ratio for the (2e)-extension rectangle.

%C A (2e)-extension rectangle matches the continued fraction A188796 for the shape L/W=(e+sqrt(1+e^2). This is analogous to the matching of a golden rectangle to the continued fraction [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,...]. Specifically, for the (2e)-extension rectangle, 5 squares are removed first, then 1 square, then 1 square, then 1 square, then 1 square, then 2 squares..., so that the original rectangle is partitioned into an infinite collection of squares.

%C Shapes of other r-extension rectangles, partitionable into a collection of squares in accord with the continued fraction of the shape [ABCD], are approximated at A188635-A188639, A188655-A188659, and A188720-A188737.

%C For (related) r-contraction rectangles, see A188738 and A188739.
