Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The sequence of real values x(n) = (1 - 1/2!)^((1/2! - 1/3!)^(...^(1/n! - 1/(n+1)!))) converges to two different limits depending on whether n is even or odd. This integer sequence gives the decimal expansion of the upper limit, to which the even-indexed terms of {x(n)} converge.
