COMMENTS

The denominators are given by A003418.

The sum diverges. In fact, the n-th partial sum is C_1 log n - C2 log log n, regardless of ordering, which can only affect c1 and c2. - R. K. Guy

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..30.

EXAMPLE

The partial sums are 1, 1/2, 1/6, 5/12, 13/60, 23/60, 101/420, 307/840, 1201/2520, 1453/2520, ...

MAPLE

f:=proc(n) if isprime(n) then -1/n else 1/n fi; end; g:=proc(n) add(f(i), i=1..n); end;
