 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS These are the numbers n for which A103762(n) = floor(e*n). If frac(e*n) > (e-1)/2, then n is a Bobo number, but not every Bobo number has this property. The exceptions are in A277603. In Bobo's article (see Bobo link), the Bobo numbers through 2105 are listed. There is a typo: the number 143 is given in place of the correct number 142. These numbers are mentioned in the comments associated with A103762. Differences between consecutive Bobo numbers are indeed 4, 7, or 11. An elementary proof is given in the Clancy/Kifowit link.
