I can't evaluate it but I can look it up. It's BesselI(0,2)/BesselI(1,2). The inverse of Sloane A052119. http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/A052119 [Broken]

Ooops. I was reading it as a simple continued fraction, and it's not, sorry.I can't evaluate it but I can look it up. It's BesselI(0,2)/BesselI(1,2). The inverse of Sloane A052119. http://www.research.att.com/~njas/sequences/A052119 [Broken]

If you like, one of those "silly mods" could just delete this for you.

Anywho, the reason I was wondering about this was that a student asked about it in my class. Apparently this thing does converge to around ~0.38, and I was just wondering if a more "pure" mathematician could help me out.
