Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

EXAMPLE

a(1) is 1 since sqrt(1) - sqrt(0)                            = 1.00000 ... ;

a(2) is 2 since sqrt(2) - sqrt(1)                            = 0.41421 ...  which is an improvement over a(0);

a(3) is 3 since sqrt(3) - sqrt(2)                            = 0.31783 ... ;

a(4) is 4 since sqrt(4) - sqrt(3)                            = 0.26794 ... ;

a(5) is 5 since sqrt(5) - sqrt(4)                            = 0.23606 ... ;

a(6) is 6 since sqrt(6) - (sqrt(1) + sqrt(2))                = 0.03527 ... ;

7 is not in the sequence since sqrt(7) -  sqrt(6)            = 0.19626 ... which is not an improvement of a(5);

8 is not in the sequence since sqrt(8) - (sqrt(1) + sqrt(3)) = 0.09637 ... which again is not an improvement over a(5);

9 is not in the sequence since sqrt(9) - sqrt(8)             = 0.17157 ... which is not an improvement of a(5);

a(7) is 10 because sqrt(10) - (sqrt(2) + sqrt(3))            = 0.01601 ... ;

a(8) is 12 because sqrt(12) - (sqrt(1) + sqrt(6))            = 0.01461 ... ; etc.
