Contribution from R. J. Mathar, Feb 12 2011: (Start)

Inserting a=3 into the Fraenkel formula, a scale factor alpha = (2-a+sqrt(a^2+4))/2 = (sqrt(13)-1)/2 is obtained, which defines the Beatty sequence A184480. The complementary beta parameter, 1/beta+1/alpha=1, is beta = (5+sqrt(13))/2 = 3+alpha, and defines this sequence here, which is the complement in the positive integers.(End)

Upper s-Wythoff sequence, where s(n)=3n. See A184117 for the definition of lower and upper s-Wythoff sequences. (End)
