%N The curvature of circles (rounded to nearest integer), successively inscribed toward the 45-degree angle of a 45-45-90 triangle, starting with a unit circle.

%C The curvature expansion factors are 2.239828809...(1/0.44636269217...) and 5.828427125...(1/0.17157287525...) or 1 / (3 - 2*sqrt(2)) for circles successively inscribed toward the 45- and 90-degree angles respectively. The ratio 1 / (3 - 2*sqrt(2)) is also 3 + 2*sqrt(2) or A156035 as commented by _Michel Marcus_. This is also (n+1) + sqrt(A005563(n)) or 1 / ((n+1) - sqrt(A005563(n))), for n = 2.

%C The curvature of circles (rounded to nearest integer) successively inscribed toward the 90-degree angle is A003499. (except the first term). See illustration in links.
