COMMENTS

Suppose that x < y. The least splitter of x and y is introduced at A227631 as the least positive integer d such that x <= c/d < y for some integer c; the number c/d is called the least splitting rational of x and y.

EXAMPLE

The splitting rationals of consecutive numbers log(1), log(2), ... are 0, 1, 4/3, 3/2, 5/3, 9/5, 2, 13/6, 9/4, 7/3, 12/5, 5/2, 13/5; the denominators form A227634, and the numerators, A227684. Chain:
log(1) <= 0 < log(2) < 1 < log(3) < 4/3 < log(4) < 3/2 < log(5) < 5/3 < ...


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[Log[n], Log[n + 1]], {n, 1, 120}] (*fractions*)
