From Peter Bala, Nov 01 2013: (Start)

Let phi = 1/2*(1 + sqrt(5)) denote the golden ratio A001622. This sequence is the simple continued fraction expansion of the constant c := 6*sum {n = 1..inf} 1/7^floor(n*phi) (= 36*sum {n = 1..inf} floor(n/phi)/7^n) = 0.87718 67194 00499 51922 ... = 1/(1 + 1/(7 + 1/(7 + 1/(49 + 1/(343 + 1/(16807 + 1/(5764801 + ...))))))). The constant c is known to be transcendental (see Adams and Davison 1977). Cf. A014565.

Furthermore, for k = 0,1,2,... if we define the real number X(k) = sum {n >= 1} 1/7^(n*Fibonacci(k) + Fibonacci(k+1)*floor(n*phi)) then the real number X(k+1)/X(k) has the simple continued fraction expansion [0; a(k+1), a(k+2), a(k+3), ...] (apply Bowman 1988, Corollary 1). (End)
