COMMENTS

(1) 3 is the only number x for which the numbers r=x-sqrt(x) and s=x+sqrt(x) satisfy the Beatty equation

1/r + 1/s = 1.

(2) Let u=2-sqrt(3) and v=1.  Jointly rank {j*u} and {k*v} as in the first comment at A182760; a(n) is the position of n*u.

(3) The complement of A182777 is A182778, which gives the positions of the natural numbers k in the joint ranking.
