COMMENTS

See A202537 for a guide to related sequences. The Mathematica program includes a graph.

W. Gawronski et al. in their paper - see ref. below - obtained the asymptotics for the Chebyshev-Stirling numbers. In the algebraic description of the respective "asymptotic coefficients" the number x = 2*log phi, where phi is the golden section, play the central role. - Roman Witula, Feb 02 2015

Also two times the Lévy measure for the continued fraction of the golden section, i.e., A202543/log(2) is the mean number of bits gained from the next convergent of the continued fraction representation. (See also Dan Lascu in links.) - A.H.M. Smeets, Jun 06 2018
