Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

In general, the complement of a nonhomogenous Beatty sequence [n*r + h] is given by [n*s + h - h*s], where s = r/(r - 1).  As an example, the complement of this sequence is A246046.  This sequence gives the positive integers k satisfying tan(k) > tan(k + 1), and A246046 gives those satisfying tan(k) < tan(k + 1).  - Clark Kimberling, Aug 24 2014

Excluding a(1), a(n) = positive floored solutions to tan(x) = x. - Derek Orr, May 30 2015
