A276459 Nested radical expansion of Pi: Pi = sqrt(a(1) + sqrt(a(2) + sqrt(a(3) + sqrt(a(4) + ...)))), with a(1) = 7 and 2 <= a(n) <= 6 for n>1. 2

%N Nested radical expansion of Pi: Pi = sqrt(a(1) + sqrt(a(2) + sqrt(a(3) + sqrt(a(4) + ...)))), with a(1) = 7 and 2 <= a(n) <= 6 for n>1.

%C Similar to Bolyai expansion. Uses the fact that for 0<p<1, 2<(2+p)^2-2<7.

%e Pi^2=7+2+p1, thus a(1)=7;

%e (2+p1)^2=6+2+p2, thus a(2)=6;

%e (2+p2)^2=2+2+p3, thus a(3)=2; ... 0<pn<1.
