COMMENTS

This is one of three sequences that partition the positive integers. In general, suppose that r, s, t are positive real numbers for which the sets {i/r: i>=1}, {j/s: j>=1}, {k/t: k>=1} are pairwise disjoint. Let a(n) be the rank of n/r when all the numbers in the three sets are jointly ranked. Define b(n) and c(n) as the ranks of n/s and n/t. It is easy to prove that
a(n)=n+[ns/r]+[nt/r],
b(n)=n+[nr/s]+[nt/s],
c(n)=n+[nr/t]+[ns/t], where []=floor.
Taking r=1, s=1/e, t=1/(e+1) gives
a=A189518, b=A189519, c=A189520.

FORMULA

The three sequences a=A189518, b=A189519, c=A189520 are given by
a(n)=n+[n/e]+[n/(e+1)],
b(n)=n+[ne]+[ne/(e+1)],
c(n)=3n+[ne]+[n/e].
Is there a simple formula for the complement of a?


MATHEMATICA

r=1; s=1/E; t=1/(E+1);
a[n_] := n + Floor[n*s/r] + Floor[n*t/r];
b[n_] := n + Floor[n*r/s] + Floor[n*t/s];
c[n_] := n + Floor[n*r/t] + Floor[n*s/t];
Table[a[n], {n, 1, 120}] (*A189518*)
Table[b[n], {n, 1, 120}] (*A189519*)
Table[c[n], {n, 1, 120}] (*A189520*)
