In the tree pictured above the branch tip marked * can be reached in two ways
LRRRRLRLRLRLRLR... = LR4(LR)infinity
RLLLLRLRLRLRLRL... = RL4(RL)infinity
Consequently, for both sequences, the corresponding branch tips have x-coordinate 0.
|With simple trigonometry these sequences are converted into geometric series, giving r as a function of q.|
|Here is a graph of the self-contacting r as a function of q.|
