COMMENTS

Every inequality in number theory of the form f(n) >= g(n) is a potential source of a sequence floor(f(n))-ceiling(g(n)).

That sequence can be negative (e.g., floor(2/3)-ceiling(1/3)=-1), but the other 3 differences floor(f(n))-floor(g(n)), ceiling(f(n))-ceiling(g(n)), and ceiling(f(n))-floor(g(n)) are nonnegative. - Jonathan Sondow, Oct 20 2013
