COMMENTS

The PARI functions t1, t2 can be used to read a triangular array T(n,k) (n >= 2, 1 <= k <= n-1) by rows from left to right: n -> T(t1(n), t2(n)). - Michael Somos, Aug 23 2002

Smallest integer such that n <= C(a(n),2). - Frank Ruskey, Nov 06 2007

a(n) = inverse (frequency distribution) sequence of A161680. - Jaroslav Krizek, Jun 19 2009

Taken as a triangle t(n, m) with offset 1, i.e., n >= m >= 1, this gives all positive integer limits r = r(a = m, b = A063929(n, m)) of the (a,b)-Fibonacci ratio F(a,b;k+1)/F(a,b;k) for k -> infinity. See the Jan 11 2015 comment on A063929. - Wolfdieter Lang, Jan 12 2015

FORMULA

a(n) = A002260(n) + A004736(n).

a(n) = A002024(n-1) + 1 = floor(sqrt(2*(n-1))+1/2) + 1 = round(sqrt(2*(n-1))) + 1. - Antonio G. Astudillo (afg_astudillo(AT)lycos.com), Apr 21 2003

a(n) = ceiling((sqrt(8n-7)+1)/2). - Reinhard Zumkeller, Aug 28 2001, modified by Frank Ruskey, Nov 06 2007, restored by M. F. Hasler, Jan 13 2015

a(n) = A080036(n-1) - (n-1) for n >= 2. - Jaroslav Krizek, Jun 19 2009

G.f.: (2*x^2+ sum_{n>=2} x^(n*(n-1)/2+2))/(1-x) = (x^2 + x^(15/8)*theta_2(0,sqrt(x))/2)/(1-x) where theta_2 is the second Jacobi theta function. - Robert Israel, Jan 12 2015

EXAMPLE

(a,b)-Fibonacci ratio limits r(a,b) (see a comment above): as a triangle with offset 1 one has t(3, m) = 4 for m = 1, 2, 3. This gives the limits r(a = m,b = A063929(3, m)), i.e., r(1,12) = r(2,8) = r(3,4) = 4 (and the limit 4 appears only for these three (a,b) values). - Wolfdieter Lang, Jan 12 2015
