%N Positive integers k with record-setting smallest values of abs(cos(k) - cos(k*Pi/180)).

%C Equivalently, positive integers k with record-setting smallest differences between cos(k) in radians and cos(k) in degrees.

%e 32 belongs to the sequence because no k < 32 has abs(cos(k) - cos(k*Pi/180)) < abs(cos(32) - cos(32*Pi/180)) = 0.01382...
