COMMENTS

We are in a rowboat on a circular lake, starting at the center. At the edge of the lake is a mean goblin. He can run k times as fast as we can row. This is the minimum value of k such that we will not be able to escape.

From Rian Hunter, Jun 16 2021: (Start)

For a spirograph defined by complex function z = p * e^(-i * b * t) + b * e^(i * t), this is the value of p as b->oo such that each petal is tangent to the next one.

If we consider the set of all right triangles such that their tangent value is equal to the opposite angle in radians, this value is equal to the negative secant of the right triangle from that set with the smallest nonzero opposite angle. (End)

FORMULA

x=-sec(y), where decimal expansion of y is A115365.

Alternatively, x=sqrt(y^2+1).
