## Golden ratio

September 25, 2012 by dberenstein

Steven Strogatz has a nice article about the golden mean in the New York Times. It’s worth a read. I learned a few more factoids about the golden mean.My favorite representation of the golden mean is in term of its continuous fraction representation.

One can use this representation to show that is the most irrational number. I’ll leave that proof for some other day.
