Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A186227 Adjusted joint rank sequence of (f(i)) and (g(j)) with f(i) before g(j) when f(i)=g(j), where f and g are the triangular numbers and heptagonal numbers.  Complement of A186228. 4

See A186219 for a general discussion of adjusted joint rank sequences.

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..100.

EXAMPLE

First, write

1..3..6..10..15..21..28..36..45... (triangular)

1.......7......18......34.......55... (heptagonal)

Then replace each number by its rank, where ties are settled by ranking the triangular number before the heptagonal:

a=(1,3,4,6,7,9,10,12,...), A186227.

b=(2,5,8,11,15,18,21,...), A186228.

MATHEMATICA

(* adjusted joint ranking; general formula *)

d=1/2; u=1/2; v=1/2; w=0; x=5/2; y=-3/2; z=0;

h[n_]:=-y+(4x(u*n^2+v*n+w-z-d)+y^2)^(1/2);

a[n_]:=n+Floor[h[n]/(2x)];

k[n_]:=-v+(4u(x*n^2+y*n+z-w+d)+v^2)^(1/2);

b[n_]:=n+Floor[k[n]/(2u)];
