Table of n, a(n) for n=1..54.

EXAMPLE

Let w(n) = e - n/(n!)^(1/n).  Approximations are shown here:

n .... w(n)  ...... 1/n

1 .... 1.71828 .... 1

2 .... 1.30407 .... 0.5

3 .... 1.06732 .... 0.333333

4 .... 0.911078 ... 0.25

5 .... 0.799022 ... 0.2

10 ... 0.510157 ... 0.1

11 ... 0.477609 ... 0.090909

a(2) = 11 because w(11) < 1/2 < w(10).

MATHEMATICA

$MaxExtraPrecision = Infinity;

z = 1000; p[k_] := p[k] = k/(k!)^(1/k) (* Finch p. 14 *)

N[Table[E - p[n], {n, 1, z}]];

f[n_] := f[n] = Select[Range[z], E - p[#] < 1/n &, 1];

u = Flatten[Table[f[n], {n, 1, z/10}]]  (* A247988 *)
