Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Determine the continued fraction convergents to e^(-G) = .561459484...; the first few being 1/1, 1/2, 4/7, 5/9, 9/16, 32/57...(check: 32/57 = .561403508...). Pick a convergent, a/b say 5/9. Then through (a+b) = n = 14, 5 of those integers are in the upper Beatty pair set: 2, 5, 8, 11, 13; while 9 terms are in the lower Beatty pair set, being 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 12, 14. Since the upper Beatty pair set is derived from (k+1) and the lower from (k+1)/k, the ratio of upper to lower converges to k = 1.789107241...= e^G.

FORMULA

a(n) = floor (n*(k+1)) where k = 1.781072417...= e^G, G = Euler's gamma constant, .577215664901...

EXAMPLE

a(7) = 19 since floor(n*2.7810724...) = 19.
