COMMENTS

The ratio of lower Beatty terms to upper tends to k = e^G. This can be confirmed by examining the continued fraction convergents to 1/k = 0.561459484..., the first few being 1/1, 1/2, 4/7, 5/9, 9/16, 32/57, ... Check: 32/57 = 0.562403508... Let a convergent = a/b. Through n = (a+b) = 14, 9 terms are in the lower Beatty pair set and 5 are in the upper (2, 5, 8, 11, 13).
Young, p. 245 states "It has been argued on probabilistic grounds that the expected number of primes p in the octave interval (x,2x) for which 2^p  1 is a prime is e^G, where G is Euler's constant."

FORMULA

a(n) = floor(n*(k+1)/k)). Lower Beatty pair terms are the set of natural numbers not in the set of upper Beatty pair terms (the latter in A093609).


EXAMPLE

a(7) = 10 = floor(10*(k+1)/k)), (k+1)/k = 1.56145948..., k = e^G = 1.78107241..., G = Euler's Gamma constant, 0.577215664...
