COMMENTS

The defining inequality {-m*r} < {n*r} is equivalent to {m*r} + {n*r} > 1. Are all a(n) in A079496? Are all a(n) denominators of intermediate convergents to sqrt(2)?

EXAMPLE

a(2)=5 because {-m*r} < {2*r} = 0.828... for m=1,2,3,4 whereas

{-5*r} = 0.9289..., so that 5 is the least m for which

{-m*r} > {2*r}.
