%N Power floor sequence of 2+sqrt(8).

%C See A214992 for a discussion of power floor sequence and the power floor function, p1(x) = limit of a(n,x)/x^n. The present sequence is a(n,r), where r = 2+sqrt(8), and the limit p1(r) = 3.8983688904482395322594950087206...

%C See A218989 for the power floor function, p4. For comparison with p1, limit(p4(r)/p1(r) = 4/3.
