A140103 Term-by-term sums of A140101 and A140100; also, equals the complement of A140102, which is the term-by-term differences of A140101 and A140100, where A140101 is the complement of A140100. 15

COMMENTS
Conjecture: a(n) = A003145(n) + n. This is the most direct connection between the Greedy Queens sequence and the tribonacci word that I know. - Michel Dekking, Mar 19 2019. [My notes show that I made this conjecture on Jul 20 2018. There are many similar conjectures relating the two problems. For example A140100 = A003145(n)-A003144(n), A140101(n) = A003146(n)-A003145(n), a(n) = A003146(n)-A003144(n). - N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 19 2019] All these conjectures are now theorems - see the Dekking et al. paper. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jul 22 2019

FORMULA
a(n) = A140100(n) + A140101(n).
Conjecture: the limit of A140103(n)/A140102(n) = t^2 = 3.38297576... (cf. A276800) where the limit of A140101(n)/A140100(n) = t = 1.839286755.. and t = tribonacci constant satisfies: t^3 = 1 + t + t^2.
