COMMENTS

Integer solutions >0 to the equation x = ceiling(r*floor(x/r)), where r = 1+sqrt(2). - Benoit Cloitre, Feb 14 2004

Equivalently, numbers m such that {rm} <= {r}, where r=2^(1/2) and { } denotes fractional part.

Andrew Plewe, May 18 2007, observed that the sequence defined by a(n) = ceiling(n*(1+sqrt(2))) appeared to give the same numbers as the sequence, originally due to Clark Kimberling, Jul 01 2006, defined by: numbers m such that {rm} <= {r}, where r=2^(1/2). That these sequences are indeed the same was shown by David Applegate. This follows since the complements of the two sequences are the same, which is shown in the comments on A080755.

It appears that A080754 gives the positions of 1 in the zero-one sequence A188037. - Clark Kimberling, Mar 19 2011
