COMMENTS

Generalized harmonic numbers are defined as H(n,k) = Sum[ 1/i^k, {i,1,n} ]. Alternating generalized harmonic numbers are defined as H'(n,k) = Sum[ (-1)^(i+1)*1/i^k, {i,1,n} ]. Note that a(n) contains the following geometric progressions: (16843-1)/3*16843^m found by Max Alekseyev, (16843-1)/2*16843^m found by Max Alekseyev, (16843-1)*2/3*16843^m, (16843-1)*16843^m, 20826*21647^m found by Max Alekseyev, (2124679-1)/3*2124679^m, (2124679-1)/2*2124679^m, (2124679-1)*2/3*2124679^m, (2124679-1)*2124679^m. Here {16843, 2124679} = A088164 are the only two currently known Wolstenholme Primes: primes p such that {2p-1} choose {p-1} == 1 mod p^4. See more details in comments for A128672 and A125581.
