COMMENTS

Suppose that x < y. The least splitter of x and y is introduced at A227631 as the least positive integer d such that x <= c/d < y for some integer c; the number c/d is called the least splitting rational of x and y. It appears that d=1 (i.e., c/d is an integer) for rationals c/d in positions given by A024206.

EXAMPLE

The first 15 splitting rationals are 1, 3/2, 2, 5/2, 3, 7/2, 11/3, 4, 9/2, 14/3, 5, 16/3, 11/2, 23/4, 6.


MATHEMATICA

r[x_, y_] := Module[{c, d}, d = NestWhile[#1 + 1 &, 1, ! (c = Ceiling[#1 x  1]) < Ceiling[#1 y]  1 &]; (c + 1)/d]; s[n_] := s[n] = Sum[(k + 1/2)^(1/2), {k, 1, n}]; t = Table[r[s[n], s[n + 1]], {n, 1, 220}]; Denominator[t] (* Peter J. C. Moses, Jul 15 2013 *)
