 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Found empirically. Logarithms are natural. Converges to within 10^-4 of the asymptotic value when the innermost term is 7. First fifteen decimals can be found numerically by using 17 nested terms. No closed form expression is known. Probably transcendental but this is unproved. Empirically, the number of bits of precision with N as the innermost term is 0.02N^2 + 2.24N - 8.5. This means that using N as the largest innermost term gives (0.02N^2 + 2.24N - 8.5)*(log_10(2)) digits. - Cade Brown, Oct 10 2016 LINKS Cade Brown, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..14997 EXAMPLE 0.82035986220878978847346679494...
