Invitation: celebrating 50 years of OEIS, 250000 sequences, and Sloane's 75th, there will be a conference at DIMACS, Rutgers, Oct 9-10 2014.

COMMENTS

The above definition is equivalent to this:  least

positive integer k such that one of the following holds:

  (1) there is an integer J such that

      n*k^2 < J^2 < (n+1)*k^2; or

  (2) there is an integer J such that (n+1)*k^2 = J^2.

Note that (1) is equivalent to the existence of a rational

number H with denominator k such that

      n < H^2 < n+1.

Positions of 1:  A005563.

Positions of 2: 2*A000217.

Positions of 2n+1: A000290.
