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”).

Hints
(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A096464 Let p(k)/q(k) = A096456(k)/A096463(k) be the k-th convergent to Pi/2; sequence gives numbers n such that |tan(p(n))|/p(n) sets a new maximal record. 4

EXAMPLE

The fifth term is 315. This means that at p(315), which is a number near 2.37*10^154, |tan(p(315))|/p(315) sets a new record, a number near 556.31.
