COMMENTS

Denominator = A111936;

a(n)/A111936(n) ---> C with C<80.

The sum of the harmonic series after having removed all terms containing in decimal representation a 9 in decimal system converges and the sum is < 80. Hence the sum of the harmonic series in which at least one digit is missing ( from 0 to 9) converges and the sum is less than 810.

EXAMPLE

n=9: 1/1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 + 1/5 + 1/6 + 1/7 + 1/8 + 1/10 = 789/280, therefore a(9) = 789.
