Explicit Formulae for the Continued Fraction Convergents of "Square Root of D"
Braza, Peter A.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v41 n1 p126-131 Jan 2010
The formulae for the convergents of continued fractions are always given recursively rather than in explicit form. This article derives explicit formulae for the convergents of the continued fraction expansions for square roots.
