Infinite product

  1. Aug 13, 2008 #1
    I am actually trying to calculate a probability and hitting upon the infinite product:

    [tex]\prod_{j=1}^{\infty}\frac{2^{j}-1}{2^{j}}[/tex]

    Any idea what this might be (it's about 0.28, but I want the formula).

    that a binary matrix is nonsingular?

    http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/A048651 [Broken] is the constant. There are several formulas there, but probably none that are 'the formula' you hoped to find.
