COMMENTS

This sequence enumerates the denominators with sign in case p=3 and n=2 of:

log(p/n) = sum( i>=0, sum(p*i+1<=j<=p*(i+1),1/j) - sum(n*i+1<=j<=n*(i+1),1/j) )

Similar sequences can be constructed for the logarithm of any rational r=p/n (p,n>0), enumerating p positive integers and n negative integers every p+n terms.

Case p=2, n=1 is A166711.

Case p=1, n=1 is A001057.

FORMULA

Sum_{k>0} 1/a(k) = log(3/2).

G.f.: x*(1+2*x+3*x^2-x^3-2*x^4+2*x^5+x^6-x^8)/((x-1)^2*(x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1)^2 ).
