Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

As follows from Gelfond's theorem, the root is irrational, so this sequence is infinite and aperiodic.  Its transcendence is, apparently, still an open problem. - Vladimir Reshetnikov, Apr 27 2013
