EXAMPLE

The values of e  (1 + 1/k)^k for k = 1..8 are approximately 0.718282, 0.468282, 0.347911, 0.276876, 0.229962, 0.196655, 0.171782, 0.152497, so that the first 6 terms of A247778 are 1,2,4,5,6,8.


MATHEMATICA

z = 600; f[n_] := f[n] = Select[Range[z], E  (1 + 1/#)^# < 1/n &, 1];
u = Flatten[Table[f[n], {n, 1, z}]] (*A247778*)
d1 = Flatten[Position[Differences[u], 1]] (*A247779*)
d2 = Flatten[Position[Differences[u], 2]] (*A247780*)
