 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Each of the positive solutions to x = q*(1-exp(-x)) obtained for q = 2, 3, 4, and 5, appears in several formulas pertinent to Planck's black-body radiation law. For a given q, the solution can be also written as q+W(-q/exp(q)), where W is the Lambert function. Here q = 2. The constant appears in asymptotic formula for A007820. - Vladimir Reshetnikov, Oct 10 2016 LINKS Stanislav Sykora, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..2000 V.
