The Question by Marvin Ray Burns

ROOT CONSTANT

rc

I have started a search for a new

mathematical constant!

Does anyone want to help me?

Consider, 1^(1/1)-2^(1/2)+3^(1/3)...

This may be a contradiction but I call rc

a dual constant.

The root constant for even numbers

(n+1=even number and rc is negative.)

The root constant for odd numbers

(n+1=odd number and rc is positive.)

rc=1^(1/1)-2^(1/2)+3^(1/3)+4^(1/4)...

Table of convergence
