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.

The positions of 1 in this sequences (indicating those least splitting rationals of s(n) and s(n+1) which are integers) are given by A186351.

EXAMPLE

The denominators (A227687) and numerators (A227688) can be read from these chains:

1 < 2 < 5/2 < 3 < 7/2 < 4 < 13/3 < 9/2 < 5 < 21/4 < 11/2 < 17/3 < 6 < . . .

s(1) <= 1 < s(2) < 2 < s(3) < 5/2 < s(4) < 3 < s(5) < 4 < s(6) < 13/3 <  . . .

MATHEMATICA

r[x_, y_] := Module[{c, d}, d = NestWhile[#1 + 1 &, 1, ! (c = Ceiling[#1 x - 1]) < Ceiling[#1 y] - 1 &]; (c + 1)/d];

s[n_] := s[n] = Sum[k^(-1/2), {k, 1, n}]; t = Table[r[s[n], s[n + 1]], {n, 1, 15}] (*fractions*)

fd = Denominator[t] (*A227687*)

fn = Numerator[t]   (*A227688*)
