COMMENTS

Decimal expansion of the shape (= length/width = Pi - sqrt(-1+Pi^2)) of the lesser 2*Pi-contraction rectangle.

See A188738 for an introduction to lesser and greater r-contraction rectangles, their shapes, and partitioning these rectangles into a sets of squares in a manner that matches the continued fractions of their shapes.
