FORMULA

sum_{k >= 1} (a_1 a_2 ... a_k)^(1/k) < e*sum_{k >= 1} (1-sum_{j=1..m} b_j/(k+1)^j)*a_k, where a_k >= 0 for all k and a_l > 0 for at least one l, m being any positive integer.

b(0) = -1, b(n) = (-1/n)*sum_{k=1..n} b(n-k)/(k+1).

EXAMPLE

Fractions begin -1, 1/2, 1/24, 1/48, 73/5760, 11/1280, 3625/580608, ...

MATHEMATICA
