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...].
