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.

COMMENTS

Let r = Pi, s = r/(r-1), and t = 1/2. Let R be the ordered set {floor[(n + t)*r] : n is an integer} and let S be the ordered set {floor[(n - t)*s : n is an integer}; thus,

R = (..., -10, -9, -7, -6, -4, -3, -1, 0, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, ...).

S = (..., -15, -11, -8, -5, -2, 1, 4, 7, 10, 14, 17, 20, ...)

By Fraenkel's theorem (Theorem XI in the cited paper); R and S partition the integers.

R is the set of integers n such that (cos n)*(cos(n + 1)) < 0;

S is the set of integers n such that (cos n)*(cos(n + 1)) > 0.

A246046 = (2,3,6,6,8,...), positive terms of R;

A062389 = (1,4,7,10,14,17,...), positive terms of S;

A258048 = (1,3,4,6,7,9,10,...), - (nonpositive terms of R).

A257984 = (2,5,8,11,15,...), - (negative terms of S);

A062389 and A246046 partition the positive integers, and A258048 and A257984 partition the nonnegative integers.
