## Coxeter's Loxodromic Sequence of Tangent Circles

An infinite sequence of Circles such that every four consecutive Circles are mutually tangent, and the Circles' Radii ..., , ..., , , , , , , ..., , , ..., are in Geometric Progression with ratio

where is the Golden Ratio (Gardner 1979ab). Coxeter (1968) generalized the sequence to Spheres.
