EXAMPLE

The first few splitting rationals are 1/1, 3/2, 2/1, 9/4, 7/3, 5/2, 8/3, 11/4, 17/6, 3/1, 31/10, 19/6; e.g. 9/4 splits H(4) and H(5), as indicated by H(4) = 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 = 2.083... < 2.25 < 2.283... = H(5) and the chain H(1) <= 1/1 < H(2) < 3/2 < H(3) < 2/1 < H(4) < 9/4 < ...


MATHEMATICA

h[n_] := h[n] = HarmonicNumber[n]; r[x_, y_] := Module[{c, d}, d = NestWhile[#1 + 1 &, 1, ! (c = Ceiling[#1 x  1]) < Ceiling[#1 y]  1 &]; (c + 1)/d]; t = Table[r[h[n], h[n + 1]], {n, 1, 120}];
