COMMENTS

a(n) = floor(n*sqrt(2)) - floor(n/sqrt(2)). Indeed, the equation {(nearest integer to n/r) = floor(nr) - floor(n/r) for all n>=0} has exactly two solutions: sqrt(2) and -sqrt(2). - Clark Kimberling, Dec 18 2003

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, in positions given by the nonhomogeneous Beatty sequences A001954 and A001953, respectively.  - Clark Kimberling, Oct 05 2014
