Suppose $a\quad =\quad \frac { { 1 }^{ 2 } }{ 1 } \quad +\quad \frac { { 2 }^{ 2 } }{ 3 } \quad +\quad \frac { { 3 }^{ 2 } }{ 5 } \quad +\quad ...\quad +\quad \frac { { 1001 }^{ 2 } }{ 2001 }$ and $b\quad =\quad \frac { { 1 }^{ 2 } }{ 3 } \quad +\quad \frac { { 2 }^{ 2 } }{ 5 } \quad +\quad \frac { { 3 }^{ 2 } }{ 7 } \quad +\quad ...\quad +\quad \frac { { 1001 }^{ 2 } }{ 2003 }$ Determine the integer with the closest value to $$a\quad -\quad b$$
