Hello seqfans,
I am considering submitting the following sequence:
0,2,2,3,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,4,4,4,4,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,5,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,6,7,
7,7,7,7,7,7,7,7,7,7,7,7,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,8,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,
9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10,10
For which the definition is:
a(n) = minimum value of j, 1 <= j <= n-1, such that floor(j^2 / n) > 0 for
each n.
The sequence has been derived from the triangle of numbers presented in
A166373.
However, a(1) = 0 and a(2:) = A003059(3:).
Should the sequence above have an independent existence in OEIS or not ?
In general, how close can a new sequence be to a pre-existing sequence in
OEIS to have its own entry ?
Please advise.
Best regards,
Chris
