Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

 A066720 The greedy rational packing sequence: a(1) = 1; for n > 1, a(n) is smallest number such that the ratios a(i)/a(j) for 1 <= i < j <= n are all distinct. 17

 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Sequence was apparently invented by Jeromino Wannhoff - see the Rosenthal link. An equivalent definition: a(1) = 1, a(2) = 2 and thereafter a(n) is the smallest number such that all a(i)*a(j) are different. - Thanks to Jean-Paul Delahaye for this comment. - N. J. A. Sloane, Oct 01 2020 If you replace the word "ratio" with "difference" and start from 1 using the same greedy algorithm you get A005282. - Sharon Sela (sharonsela(AT)hotmail.com), Jan 15, 2002 Taking a(n) as the smallest number such that the pairwise sums a(i)+a(j) (i
