COMMENTS

Let r = (3+sqrt(17))/4. Then (floor(n*r)) and (floor(n*r + r/2)) are a pair of Beatty sequences; i.e., every positive integer is in exactly one of the sequences.  The sequence (a(n) mod 2)) of 0's and 1's has only two run-lengths: 4 and 5.

More generally, suppose that t > 0.  There exists an irrational number r such that (floor(n*r)) and (floor(n(r+t)) are a pair of Beatty sequences.  Specifically, r = (2 - t + sqrt(t^2 + 4))/2, as in the Mathematica code below.  See Comments at A182760.
