COMMENTS

Quoting Steven Finch: "The slopes of the 'critical parallelogram' are (1+sqrt(5))/2 [phi] and (1-sqrt(5))/2 [-1/phi]."

Essentially the same as A229780, A134972, A134945, A098317 and A002163. - R. J. Mathar, May 23 2014

Let W_n be the collection of all binary words of length n that do not contain two consecutive 0's. Let r_n be the ratio of the total number of 1's in W_n divided by the total number of letters in W_n. Then lim_{n->infinity} r_n = 0.723606... Equivalently, lim_{n->oo} A004798(n)/(n*A000045(n+2)) = 0.723606... - Geoffrey Critzer, Feb 04 2022
