COMMENTS

Decimal expansion of the asymptotic (n -> inf) probability of success in the secretary problem when the number of applicants is uniformly distributed on {1, 2, ..., n}. It means that less is known than in the basic secretary problem, so this constant is less than A068985 (and also A246665).
