COMMENTS

Apart from the second digit the same as A177707.
Decimal expansion of the shape of a (1/4)extension rectangle.
See A188640 for definitions of shape and rextension rectangle.
A (1/4)extension rectangle matches the continued fraction [1,7,1,1,7,1,1,7,1,1,7,1,1,7,...] for the shape L/W= (1+sqrt(65))/8. This is analogous to the matching of a golden rectangle to the continued fraction [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,...]. Specifically, for the (4/3)extension rectangle, 1 square is removed first, then 7 squares, then 1 square, then 1 square, then 7 squares,..., so that the original rectangle is partitioned into an infinite collection of squares.
