COMMENTS

This is very similar to A128438, which is a different sequence. They differ at n=6 (and nowhere else?). - N. J. A. Sloane, Nov 21 2008

Denominator of 1/n + 2/(n-1) + 3/(n-2) + ... + (n-1)/2 + n.

Denominator of sum(k=1,n,frac(n/k)) where frac(x/y) denotes the fractional part of x/y. - Benoit Cloitre, Oct 03 2002

Denominator of Sum{n/d : 1<d<n and n mod d > 0}. Numerator = A079076. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Dec 21 2002

a(n) is odd iff n is a power of 2. - Benoit Cloitre, Oct 03 2002

a(n) equals the denominator of the (closed form) evaluation of Sum[HarmonicNumber[k+n-1],{k,1,r}] (see Mathematica code below). - John M. Campbell, May 28 2011

Indices where a(n) differs from A128438 are terms of A074791. - Gary Detlefs, Sep 03 2011

a(n) = A213999(n,n-2) for n > 1. - Reinhard Zumkeller, Jul 03 2012

FORMULA

Denominators of coefficients in expansion of -log(1-x)/(1-x)^2. Denominators of (n+1)*(harmonic(n+1)-1). Denominators of (n+1)*(Psi(n+2)+gamma-1). - Vladeta Jovovic, Sep 02 2002

a(n) = Numerator(h(n)/h(n-1))-Denominator(h(n)/h(n-1)), n>1, where h(n) is the n-th harmonic number. - Gary Detlefs, Sep 03 2011
