First Foiaș Constant

Let:

$x_{n+1} = \left({1 + \dfrac 1 {x_n} }\right)^{x_n}$

for $n = 1, 2, 3, \ldots$

The first Foiaș constant is the limit of $x_n$ as $n \to \infty$.


Second Foiaș Constant

Let $x_1 \in \R_{>0}$ be a (strictly) positive real number.

Let:

$x_{n + 1} = \left({1 + \dfrac 1 {x_n} }\right)^n$

for $n = 1, 2, 3, \ldots$


The second Foiaș constant is defined as the unique real number $\alpha$ such that if $x_1 = \alpha$ then the sequence $\left\langle{x_{n + 1} }\right\rangle$ diverges to infinity.
