COMMENTS

e^(1/5) is a transcendental number.

In general, the ordinary generating function for the continued fraction expansion of e^(1/k), with k = 1, 2, 3..., is (1 + (k - 1)*x + x^2 - (k + 1)*x^3 + 7*x^4 - x^5)/(1 - x^3)^2.

FORMULA

G.f.: (1 + 4*x + x^2 - x^3 + 6*x^4 - x^5)/(1 - x^3)^2.

a(n) = 1 + (3 + 10*floor(n/3))*(1 - (n-1)^2 mod 3). [Bruno Berselli, Feb 04 2016]

EXAMPLE

e^(1/5) = 1 + 1/(4 + 1/(1 + 1/(1 + 1/(14 + 1/(1 + 1/...))))).
