COMMENTS

Equals the inverse of the position xm of the Dawson integral maximum, and also the negative of the second derivative of the Dawson integral at xm. - Stanislav Sykora, Sep 17 2014

FORMULA

Volume(n) ~ 2*sqrt(Pi)*c^n/GAMMA((n+1)/2), where GAMMA is the Euler gamma function.

Equals 1/A133841 = 2*A133842.- Stanislav Sykora, Sep 17 2014

EXAMPLE

1.0820884492703633969455186604829543727812...

MATHEMATICA

digits = 100; DawsonF[x_] := Sqrt[Pi]*Erfi[x]/(2*Exp[x^2]); c = 2*DawsonF[x] /. FindRoot[DawsonF'[x], {x, 1}, WorkingPrecision -> digits+5]; RealDigits[c, 10, digits] // First

PROG

(PARI) Erfi(z) = -I*(1.0-erfc(I*z));

Dawson(z) = 0.5*sqrt(Pi)*exp(-z*z)*Erfi(z);

DDawson(z) = 1.0 - 2*z*Dawson(z); \\ Derivative of the above

x = 1.0/solve(z=0.1, 2.0, real(DDawson(z))) \\ Stanislav Sykora, Sep 17 2014
