 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Robert G. Wilson v used Mathematica with a changing number of digits to accommodate 24 digits to the right of the decimal point. At 12128 the difference from an integer is 0.000016103224605297330719... The sequence of rounded reciprocals of the distances, b(n) = round(1/(0.5-frac(Pi^a(n)-.5))) = round(1/abs(round(Pi^a(n))-Pi^a(n))), starts { 7, 8, 159, 190, 270, 2665, 10811, 26577, 62099, 70718, ... }. - M. F. Hasler, Apr 06 2008 REFERENCES J.-M. De Koninck, Ces nombres qui nous fascinent, Entry 58, p. 21, Ellipses, Paris 2008. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..13. EXAMPLE First term is 1 because this is just Pi = 3.14159.... Second term is 2 because Pi^2 = 9.869604... which is 0.13039... away from its nearest integer. Pi^3 = 31.00627..., hence third term is 3.
