Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

COMMENTS

Conjecture: the sequence is infinite.

See the reference for a similar problem with Fibonacci numbers.

For k > 1, the interval [Pi*k - 1/k, Pi*k + 1/k] contains exactly one integer.

The corresponding integers k are 1, 2, 6, 7, 14, 21, 28,...(see A265739).

We observe two properties:

(1) a(n) = m*a(n-m+1) for some n, m=2,3,4.

Examples:

m = 2 => a(7)=2*a(6), a(11)=2*a(10), a(15)=2*a(14), a(20)=2*a(19), a(25)=2*a(24), a(30)=2*a(29),...

m = 3 => a(16)=3*a(14), a(21)=3*a(19), a(26)=3*a(24), a(31)=3*a(29),...

m = 4 => a(4)=4*a(1), a(32)=4*a(29), …

But, for m=5, the formula (1) is not valid. We find a(13)=5*a(9), a(18)=5*a(10), a(23)=5*a(11),…

(2) a(n+2) = a(n) + a(n+1) for n = 4, 9, 26, 27, 28, 29, 35,..

EXAMPLE

For k=1 there exists two integers a(1)=3 and a(2)=4 in the interval [1*Pi -1/1, 1*Pi + 1/1] = [2.14159...,4.14159...];

for k=2, the number a(3)=6 is in the interval [2*Pi-1/2, 2*Pi+1/2] = [5.783185..., 6.783185...];

for k=6, the number a(4)= 19 is in the interval [6*Pi-1/6, 6*Pi+1/6] = [18.682889..., 19.016223...].
