COMMENTS

Borwein et al. express the sum in terms of theta function values.
Compare with Sum_{k >= 1} (1)^(k+1)/(F(k)^2 + 1) = (3  sqrt(5))/6 and Sum_{k >= 3} (1)^(k+1)/(F(k)^2  1) = (11  3*sqrt(5))/18.  Peter Bala, Nov 13 2019
Duverney (1997) proved that this constant does not belong to the quadratic number field Q(sqrt(5)), and Duverney et al. (1998) proved that it is transcendental.  Amiram Eldar, Oct 30 2020
