COMMENTS

The Mathematica program includes a graph. See A197476 for a guide for the least x>0 satisfying cos(b*x)=(cos(c*x))^2 for selected b and c.
Conjecture: the constant here, 3.52133782..., is 3 plus the constant in A197383, the latter being the least t>0 satisfying sin(pi*t/6)=(sin pi*t/3)^2.
