Hi there all smart people!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm doing some work on continued fractions of this type:

http://viitanen.se/cf.gif [Broken]

I'w worked out an formula for the exact value of tn and I'm now looking for limitations for that formula...

K≠-1 is one limitation since it will give dev. by 0.

My question now is:

Is k=0 a possible value, it gives the same value for all tn, i.e. 1. Though, it does not generate the same pattern as other values of k.

Is a value betwen o and -1 a possible value for k? These does not give the same pattern as other values.

Note that I get the right answer for the value of tn using the formual, my question is simply if they are a part of the continuos fraction even if they don't follow the same pattern on the graph?

Please answer asap!
