Harry J. Smith, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

FORMULA

A well-known inequality is 2*n^1/2 - 2 < b(n) < 2*n^1/2 - 1.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = floor(1 + 1/sqrt(2) + 1/sqrt(3) + 1/sqrt(4)) = floor(2.78445705037617328890999314260681) = 2.

MATHEMATICA

Table[ Floor[ Sum[1/k^(1/2), {k, 1, n} ]], {n, 1, 75} ]

PROG

(PARI) { s=0; for (n=1, 1000, s+=1/n^(1/2); write("b067085.txt", n, " ", floor(s)) ) } \\ Harry J. Smith, May 10 2010
