COMMENTS

a(A002088(n)) = 1 for n > 1.  Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 29 2012
When read as an irregular table with each 1 entry starting a new row, then the nth row consists of the set of multiplicative units of Z_{n+1}. These rows form a group under multiplication mod n.  Tom Edgar, Aug 20 2013

EXAMPLE

Arrange positive fractions < 1 by increasing denominator then by increasing numerator: 1/2, 1/3, 2/3, 1/4, 3/4, 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, 1/6 ... (this is A020652/A038567). [William Rex Marshall, Dec 16 2010]
