FORMULA

a(n) = min{t; t^2  n + 1}, where t=floor(sqrt(n1))+1.


EXAMPLE

The start of the sequence as triangle array read by rows:
1;
2,2,1;
3,3,3,2,1;
4,4,4,4,3,2,1;
. . .
Row number k contains 2k1 numbers k,k,...k,k1,k2,...1 (k times repetition "k").


MATHEMATICA

f[n_]:=Module[{t=Floor[Sqrt[n1]]+1}, Min[t, t^2n+1]]; Array[f, 80] (* Harvey P. Dale, Dec 31 2012 *)


PROG

(Python)
t=int(math.sqrt(n1)) +1
i=min(t, t**2n+1)
