It is known that if a ∈ ℂ \(−∞,−¼) and an → a as n → ∞, then the infinite continued fraction with coefficients a1, a2,... converges. A conjecture has been recorded by Jacobsen et al., taken from the unorganized portions of Ramanujan’s notebooks, that if a ∈ (−∞,−¼) and an → a as n→∞, then the continued fraction diverges. Counterexamples to this conjecture for each value of a in (−∞,−¼) are provided. Such counterexamples have already been constructed by Glutsyuk, but the examples given here are significantly shorter and simpler.
