A class of sequences defined by nonlinear recurrences involving the greatest integer function is studied, a typical member of the class being For this sequence, it is shown that lim a (n)/n as n → ∞ exists and equals 12/(log432). More generally, for any sequence defined by where the rt > 0 and the mi are integers ≥ 2, the asymptotic behavior of a(n) is determined.
