Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

This constant appears in a historic problem posed by Adriaan van Roomen (Adrianus Romanus) in his Ideae mathematicae from 1593, solved by Vi├Ęte. See the Havil reference, problem 4, pp. 69-74. See also the comments, references and links  in A302711.

The present identity is R(45, 2*sin(Pi/675)) = 2*sin(Pi/15) = A272534 = 0.415823381635518..., with a special case of monic Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind, named R, given in A127672.
