%N Numerator of the fraction n*Sum_{k=1..n} 1/(n+k).

%C a(n) almost always equals A082687(n), but differs for n in A125740.

%C p divides a((p-1)/3) for primes p in A002476, that is, primes of form 6*n + 1. - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Jul 16 2006

%F a(n) = numerator(n*Sum_{k=1..n} 1/(n+k)).

%F a(n) = numerator(n*(Psi(2*n+1) - Psi(n+1))).

%F a(n) = numerator(n*Sum_{k=1..2*n} (-1)^(k+1)/k).

%F a(n) = numerator(n*A058313(2*n)/A058312(2*n)).

%F a(n) = numerator(Sum_{j=1..n} Sum_{i=1..n} 1/(i+j-1)), which is the numerator of the sum of all matrix elements of n X n Hilbert Matrix M(i,j) = 1/(i+j-1), (i,j = 1..n). The denominator is A117664(n). - _Alexander Adamchuk_, Apr 23 2006

%e The first few fractions are 1/2, 7/6, 37/20, 533/210, 1627/504, 18107/4620, 237371/51480, ... = A117731/A296519.

%e For n=2, the n X n Hilbert matrix is

%e 1 1/2

%e 1/2 1/3

%e Thus, a(2) = numerator(1 + 1/2 + 1/2 + 1/3) = numerator(7/3) = 7.

%e The n X n Hilbert matrix begins as follows:

%e 1 1/2 1/3 1/4 1/5 1/6 1/7 1/8 ...

%e 1/2 1/3 1/4 1/5 1/6 1/7 1/8 1/9 ...

%e 1/3 1/4 1/5 1/6 1/7 1/8 1/9 1/10 ...

%e 1/4 1/5 1/6 1/7 1/8 1/9 1/10 1/11 ...

%e 1/5 1/6 1/7 1/8 1/9 1/10 1/11 1/12 ...
