A084252 A measure of how close r^n is to an integer where r is the real root of x^3-x-1, i.e.. r = (1/2 + sqrt(23/108))^(1/3) + (1/2 - sqrt(23/108))^(1/3) = 1.3247.... (Higher absolute value of a(n) means closer, negative means less than closest integer.) 1

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..63.

FORMULA

a(n) = round(1/(r^n - round(r^n))).

EXAMPLE

a(4)=13 since r^4 = 3.0795956..., 1/(3.0795956...-round(3.0795956...)) = 1/0.0795956... = 12.5635... and round(12.5635...) = 13.

CROSSREFS

Cf. A056581, A060006.

Positive values when n is in A051016 and negative when n is in A051017.
