 OFFSET 1,2 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.  Since s(n) -> 1/e, the sequence of least splitting rationals also approaches 1/e . LINKS Clark Kimberling, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000 EXAMPLE The first 15 splitting rationals are 0/1, 1/4, 3/10, 7/22, 1/3, 18/53, 12/35, 9/26, 8/23, 7/20, 13/37, 6/17, 17/48, 11/31, 16/45. MATHEMATICA z = 100; 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] = (1 - 1/n)^n ; t = Table[r[s[n], s[n + 1]], {n, 1, z}]; Denominator[t] (* A227803, Peter J. C.
