Definition
$\varphi = \frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2}$ is the golden ratio.
Formulas
(1)
$\varphi^2-\varphi-1=0$, which has two roots, $\varphi$ and $\varphi^{-1}$.
(2)
$\varphi^{-1} = 1 - \varphi$.
Comments
(3)
$\varphi$ equals the ratio $a/b$ of those positive real numbers $a$ and $b < a$, such that $\frac{a+b}{a} = \frac{a}{b}$.
