On the optimal continued fraction expansion of a quadratic surd

Matthews, Keith

Description

We describe the period structure of the optimal continued fraction expansion of a quadratic surd, in terms of the period of its nearest square continued fraction expansion. The analysis results in a faster algorithm for determining the optimal continued f
