https://oeis.org/A088306 Positive integers n with |tan n| > n.
It occurs to me that with a small change to the definition, more
information can be supplied for this sequence. The proposed definition
is "Numbers n such that tan(n) > abs(n), ordered by abs(n)." This will
produce a signed sequence, whose absolute values match the current
sequence, and the signs will indicate whether the particular tan(n) is
positive or negative.
I am reasonably certain that this sequence should be in the OEIS. The
question is, should it be A088306, or a new sequence? If the change was
anything more than supplying signs to an unsigned sequence, there would
be no question that it should be a new sequence. As it is, I am
uncertain how to proceed.
I did start to add the sequence, and got the message "Warning: sequence
may be in OEIS already. If possible, please provide enough terms to
distinguish it from these other sequences." because, of course, the
values do match A088306 except for sign.
