A020650 Numerators in recursive bijection from positive integers to positive rationals (the bijection is f(1) = 1, f(2n) = f(n)+1, f(2n+1) = 1/(f(n)+1)). 7

COMMENTS

The fractions are given in their reduced form, thus gcd(a(n), A020651(n)) = 1 for all n. - Antti Karttunen, May 26 2004

From Yosu Yurramendi, Jul 13 2014 : (Start)

If the terms (n>0) are written as an array (left-aligned fashion) with rows of length 2^m, m = 0,1,2,3,...

1,

2,1,

3,1,3,2,

4,1,4,3,5,2,5,3,

5,1,5,4,7,3,7,4, 7,2, 7,5, 8,3, 8,5,

6,1,6,5,9,4,9,5,10,3,10,7,11,4,11,7,9,2,9,7,12,5,12,7,11,3,11,8,13,5,13,8,

then the sum of the m-th row is 3^m (m = 0,1,2,), and each column is an arithmetic sequence.

If the rows are written in a right-aligned fashion:

                                                                        1,

                                                                      2,1,

                                                                 3,1, 3,2,

                                                       4,1, 4,3, 5,2, 5,3,

                                    5,1,5,4, 7,3, 7,4, 7,2, 7,5, 8,3, 8,5,

6,1,6,5,9,4,9,5,10,3,10,7,11,4,11,7,9,2,9,7,12,5,12,7,11,3,11,8,13,5,13,8,

each column k is a Fibonacci sequence.
