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 n-th 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

CROSSREFS

Essentially the same as A038566, which is the main entry for this sequence.

Cf. A020653, A038567-A038569, A182972-A182976.

A054424 gives mapping to Stern-Brocot tree.

Cf. A037161.

Sequence in context: A277427 A231631 A038566 * A096107 A128487 A056609
