COMMENTS

This constant is the least x>0 for which the function f(x)=(sin(x))^2+(cos(3x))^2 has its maximal value.  Least positive solutions of the equations f(x)=m/2, f(x)=m/3, f(x)=1, and f(x)=1/2 are given by sequences shown in the guide below.

In general, suppose that b and c are distinct positive real numbers.  Let f(x)=(sin(bx))^2+cos((cx))^2.  The extrema of f are the solutions of b*sin(2bx)=c*sin(2cx).

In the following guide, constants x given by the sequences (or explicit number) listed for each b,c are, in this order:

(1) least x>0 such that f(x)=(its maximum, m)

(2) m, the maximum of f

(3) least x>0 having f(x)=m/2

(4) least x>0 having f(x)=m/3

(5) least x>0 having f(x)=1

(6) least x>0 having f(x)=1/2
