 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Suppose that x > 0. A fraction p/q of primes is an upper primes-only best approximate, and we write "p/q is in U(x)", if p'/q < x < p/q < u/v for all primes u and v such that v < q, where p' is greatest prime < p in case p >= 3. Let q(1) = 2 and let p(1) be the least prime >= x. The sequence U(x) follows inductively: for n >= 1, let q(n) is the least prime q such that x < p/q < p(n)/q(n) for some prime p. Let q(n+1) = q and let p(n+1) be the least prime p such that x < p/q < p(n)/q(n). For a guide to POBAs, lower POBAs, and upper POBAs, see A265759. LINKS EXAMPLE The upper POBAs to tau start with 5/2, 5/3, 31/19, 47/29, 157/97, 911/563, 1021/631. For example, if p and q are primes and q > 97, and p/q > tau, then 157/97 is closer to tau than p/q is.
