Hello seqfans,


I am considering submitting the following sequence:






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


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,




Christopher Hunt Gribble
