COMMENTS

Let x(n) = (1/2)*(-(2*n + 1) + sqrt((2*n + 1)^2 + 4)) and f(n,k) = (-1)*Sum_{i=1..k} Sum_{j=1..i} (-1)^floor(j*x(n)). Then a(n) = k is the least integer k > 0 such that f(n, k) = 0. In other words, f(n, a(n)) = 0, and if f(n,k) = 0, then a(n) <= k. [Edited by Petros Hadjicostas, Jul 12 2020]
