 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS The n-th greedy power of x, when 0.5 < x < 1, is the smallest integer exponent a(n) that does not cause the power series sum_{k=1..n} x^a(k) to exceed unity. LINKS FORMULA a(n)=sum_{k=1..n}floor(g_k) where g_1=1, g_{n+1}=log_x(x^frac(g_n) - x) (n>0) at x=(e/4) and frac(y) = y - floor(y). EXAMPLE a(4)=13 since (e/4) +(e/4)^3 +(e/4)^13 < 1 and (e/4) +(e/4)^3 +(e/4)^12 > 1; since the power 12 makes the sum > 1, then 13 is the 3rd greedy power of (e/4).
