%N Permutation of the integers: 3 positives, 2 negatives.

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

%C 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) )

%C 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.

%C Case p=2, n=1 is A166711.

%C Case p=1, n=1 is A001057.
