COMMENTS

Suppose that r and s are distinct real numbers, and let f(r,s,k) = [s[r*k]] - [r[s*k]]. Let (G(n)) be the sequence of those k for which f(r,s,k) > 0, let (E(n)) be those for which f(r,s,k) = 0, and (L(n)), those for which f(r,s,k) < 0. Clearly (G(n)), E(n)), L(n)) partition the positive integers.

Conjecture: the limits g = lim G(n)/n, e = lim E(n)/n, el = lim L(n) exist; if so, then 1/g + 1/e + 1/el = 1.) In particular, A259724, A259725 and A259726 partition the positive integers.
