COMMENTS

See A175441 - denominators of the harmonic means of the first n positive integers. [From Jaroslav Krizek, May 16 2010]

a(n) is also the denominator of H(n-1)/n + 1/n^2=-int(x^n*ln(1-x),x=0..1) with H(n)= A001008(n)/A002805(n) the harmonic number of order n. - Groux Roland, Jan 08 2011.

Equivalently, a(n) is the reduced denominator of the arithmetic mean of the reciprocals of the first n positive integers (corresponding reduced numerator is A175441(n)). - Rick L. Shepherd, Jun 15 2014

FORMULA

a(n) = denominator(EulerGamma/n + PolyGamma(0, 1 + n)/n). [Artur Jasinski, Nov 02 2008]

a(n) = numerator(n/H(n)), where H(n) is the n-th harmonic number. [Gary Detlefs, Sep 10 2011]

a(n) = denominator(sum(1/(k*(k+n)), k=1..oo)). [Paolo P. Lava, Jan 17 2013]
