 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS As n-->inf, a(n) converges to 0.628736607098954801603428... This is the result of taking the denominator of a continued fraction with alternating signs a(n) = 1/(1+1/(2-1/(3+1/(4-...1/(n +/- 1))))), where addition follows an odd number and subtraction follows an even number. LINKS Robert Israel, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..449 EXAMPLE a(1) = 1/(1+1) = 1/2; a(2) = 1/(1+1/(2-1)) = 1/2; a(3) = 1/(1+1/(2-1/(3+1))) = 7/11; a(4) = 1/(1+1/(2-1/(3+1/(4-1)))) = 17/27.
