COMMENTS

This constant is a solution x of R(45, x) = sqrt(2 + sqrt(2 - sqrt(2 - sqrt(2 - sqrt(2 - sqrt(2)))))) = A303982, with the monic Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind, called R, with coefficients given in A127672. This polynomial with the given value appears in the historic problem (exemplum secundum) posed by Adriaan van Roomen (Adrianus Romanus) in his Ideae mathematicae from 1593. However, the two solutions given there (in two different printings) are incorrect. See A303982 for comments and the Vieta link.
