FORMULA

Set a(1) = 0; a(0) = 1; a(n+1) = c(n) * a(n)  a(n1), where t(0) = 2*Pi, c(n) = ceiling (t(n)), and t(n+1) = 1/(c(n)  t(n)).


EXAMPLE

The best integer overestimate of 2*Pi is 7. Between 2*Pi and 7 the rational with the smallest denominator is 13/2. Between 2*Pi and 13/2, the rational with the smallest denominator is 19/3. So a(1) = 7, a(2) = 13, a(3) = 19.
