COMMENTS

In order for a positive x to satisfy: x = 1 + Sum_{n>=1} {x^(n/2)}/2^n, x must be found in the open interval (2^(2/7), 2^(1/3)).

When x <= 2^(2/7), then 1 + Sum_{n>=1} {x^(n/2)}/2^n < x ;

when x >= 2^(1/3), then 1 + Sum_{n>=1} {x^(n/2)}/2^n > x.

FORMULA

Also, x = 1 + Sum_{n>=1} {sqrt(x^n)} / 2^n, where {z} denotes the fractional part of z.

EXAMPLE

x = 1.2517833968605401836370872270577747589485843833345\

46847369883507572337...

The constant is found in the interval (2^(2/7), 2^(1/3)) where

2^(2/7) = 1.219013654204475..., 2^(1/3) = 1.259921049894873...

PROG

(PARI) x=1.25178; for(i=1, 1301, x = (5*x - 1 - sum(n=1, 400, frac(x^(n/2))/2^n))/4); x
