%N Decimal expansion of (11 + sqrt(85))/2.

%C This constant is Heuberger and Wagner's lambda. They consider the number of maximum matchings a tree of n vertices may have, and show that the largest number of maximum matchings (A333347) grows as O(lambda^(n/7)) (see A333346 for the 7th root). Lambda is the larger eigenvalue of matrix M = [8,3/5,3] which is raised to a power when counting matchings in a chain of "C" parts in the trees (their lemma 6.2).

%C Apart from the first digit the same as A176522. - _R. J. Mathar_, Apr 03 2020
