 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Suppose that (a(n)) and (b(n)) are complementary sequences that satisfy a complementary equation b(n)=f(a(n),n) and that the limits r = lim(a(n)/n) and s = lim(b(n)/n) exist and are both in the open interval (0,1).  Let c(n)=floor(a(n)) and d(n)=floor(b(n)), so that (c(n)) and d(n)) are a pair of Beatty sequences.  Define e(n) = d(n)-f(c(n),n).  The sequence (e(n)) is here introduced as the Beatty discrepancy of the complementary equation b(n)=f(a(n),n).  In the case at hand, (e(n)) measures the closeness of the pair (A136495,A136496) to the Beatty pair (A138251,A138252). LINKS FORMULA A138253(n) = d(n)-c(c(n))-n, where c(n)=A138251(n), d(n)=A138252(n). EXAMPLE d(1)-c(c(1))-1=3-1-1=1; d(2)-c(c(2))-2=6-2-2=2; d(3)-c(c(3))-3=9-5-3=1; d(4)-c(c(4))-4=12-7-4=1. CROSSREFS Cf. A136495, A136496, A138251, A138252.
