comment closed form $f_n=\sqrt{2f_{n-1}}$ ?
So f_1 = 2^(1 + 3/4) ?, but I thought f_1 was 2^(1/2)

@DanielV, it does lead to a paradox. The sum from 1 to infinity of 2^k = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 etc. = -1 (our assumption). Now 2 = 1+1. Therefore 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = -1. But the sum from 1 to infinity of 1^k = -1/2.

Hint: Equation (5) in the paper is wrong. The subscript for phi should be k, not n.
