COMMENTS

rho(34):= 2*cos(Pi/34) is used in the algebraic number field Q(rho(34)) of degree 16 (see A187360) in which s(17) = 2*cos(Pi/17) (for its decimal expansion see A228787), the length ratio side/R of a regular 17gon inscribed in a circle of radius R, is an integer. See A228787 for this expansion.
Gauss' formula for cos(2*Pi/17), given in A210644, can be inserted into rho(34) = sqrt(2+sqrt(2+2*cos(2*Pi/17))).
The minimal polynomial of rho(34) is 17  204*x^2 + 714*x^4  1122*x^6 + 935*x^8  442*x^10 + 119*x^12  17*x^14 + x^16 (row n=34 polynomial of A187360).
The continued fraction expansion starts with 1; 1, 116, 4, 1, 2, 1, 20, 2, 2, 1, 7, 10, 2, 2, 1, 3, 6, 1, 4, 4, 15, ...
