 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Suppose that x > 0. A fraction p/q of primes is a lower primes-only best approximate, and we write "p/q is in L(x)", if u/v < p/q < x < p'/q for all primes u and v such that v < q, where p' is least prime > p. Let q(1) be the least prime q such that u/q < x for some prime u, and let p(1) be the greatest such u. The sequence L(x) follows inductively: for n > 1, let q(n) is the least prime q such that p(n)/q(n) < p/q < x for some prime p. Let q(n+1) = q and let p(n+1) be the greatest prime p such that p(n)/q(n) < p/q < x. For a guide to POBAs, lower POBAs, and upper POBAs, see A265759. LINKS EXAMPLE The lower POBAs to e; start with 5/2, 13/5, 19/7, 307/113, 443/163, 617/227, 2237/823. For example, if p and q are primes and q > 823, and p/q < e, then 2237/823 is closer to e than p/q is.
