COMMENTS

Let s(n) = zeta(3) - Sum_{k = 1..n} 1/k^3.  Conjecture:  for n >= 1, s(a(n)) < 1/n^2 < s(a(n)-1), and the difference sequence of A049473 consists solely of 0's and 1's, in positions given by the nonhomogeneous Beatty sequences A001954 and A001953, respectively. - Clark Kimberling, Oct 05 2014

FORMULA

From Ralf Steiner, Oct 23 2019: (Start)

a(n) = floor(2*sqrt(A000217(n))).

a(n) = A136119(n + 1) - 1.

a(n + 1) - a(n) is in {1,2}.

a(n + 3) - a(n) is in {4,5}. (End)
