Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

The square of this constant, C^2 = 1.6180339472264..., is very close to the Golden Ratio Phi (A001622).

This constant is about 3% less than Mills's constant, 1.306377883863..., (A051021).

Since there is always a prime between an integer and its square, this constant should satisfy the same criteria as does Mills's constant (A051021).

This constant, C, produces A059785.
