A141207 Let sequences X and Y consist of the least positive integers such that 2X+Y is the complement of X and X+Y is the complement of Y, starting with X(1)=1 and Y(1)=1; then this sequence equals X+Y, while X=A141204, 2X+Y=A141205, Y=A141206. 4

FORMULA

CONJECTURES on evaluating limits.

The following limits exist for some irrational q and r:

Limit X(n)/n = 1 + q, Limit {2X+Y}(n)/n = 1 + 1/q and

Limit Y(n)/n = 1 + r, Limit {X+Y}(n)/n = 1 + 1/r.

Thus q and r can be defined by:

Limit X(n)/{2X+Y}(n) = q = (1 + q)/(3 + 2*q + r) and

Limit Y(n)/{X+Y}(n) = r = (1 + r)/(2 + r + q).

Therefore q = least positive real root that satisfies:

1 - 4*q + 2*q^2 + 2*q^3 = 0, giving q = 0.31544880690757230308868993...

Also, r = least positive real root that satisfies:

2 - 4*r + r^3 = 0, giving r = 0.5391888728108891165258759...

EXAMPLE

Union of X and 2X+Y = positive integers:

X=[1,2,4,5,6,8,9,10,11,13,14,15,17,18,20,21,22,23,24,...];

2X+Y=[3,7,12,16,19,25,28,32,36,41,44,48,54,57,63,66,70,...].

Limit X(n)/{2X+Y}(n) = 0.3154488069...

Union of Y and X+Y = positive integers:

Y=[1,3,4,6,7,9,10,12,14,15,16,18,20,21,23,24,26,27,29,...];

X+Y=[2,5,8,11,13,17,19,22,25,28,30,33,37,39,43,45,48,50,...].

Limit Y(n)/{X+Y}(n) = 0.5391888728...
