The Stern-Brocot or Farey Tree
There are several versions of this tree. This one, which appears in R. L. Graham, D. E. Knuth and O. Patashnik, Concrete Mathematics. Addison-Wesley, Reading, MA, 1990, p. 117, was drawn by Alexander Bogomolny. For another version see J. C. Lagarias, Number Theory and Dynamical Systems, pp. 35-72 of S. A. Burr, ed., The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Number Theory, Proc. Sympos. Appl. Math., 46 (1992). Amer. Math. Soc.
The nth order Farey series is the set of reduced fractions between 0 and 1 whose denominators are n or less, arranged in increasing order, and corresponds to a subtree of the Stern-Brocot tree.
There are also many associated sequences:
