%N Irregular triangular array of denominators of the positive rational numbers ordered as in Comments.

%C Decree that (row 1) = (1). For n >= 2, row n consists of numbers in decreasing order generated as follows: x+1 for each x in row n-1 together with 4/x for each x in row n-1, and duplicates are rejected as they occur. Every positive rational number occurs exactly once in the resulting array.

%H Clark Kimberling, <a href="/A243854/b243854.txt">Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..3000</a>

%e First 6 rows of the array of rationals:

%e 1/1

%e 4/1 ... 2/1

%e 5/1 ... 3/1

%e 6/1 ... 4/3 ... 4/5

%e 7/1 ... 7/3 ... 9/5 ... 2/3

%e 8/1 ... 10/3 ... 14/5 .. 20/9 .. 12/7 .. 5/3 .. 4/7

%e The denominators, by rows: 1,1,1,1,1,1,3,5,1,3,5,3,1,3,5,9,7,3,7.
