A076514 a(1)=1, a(n) is the smallest integer > a(n-1) such that the continued fraction for 1/a(1)+1/a(2)+....+1/a(n) contains strictly more elements than the continued fraction for 1/a(1)+1/a(2)+....+1/a(n-1). 0

EXAMPLE

Continued fraction for 1+1/2+1/3+1/11+1/16 is [1, 1, 74, 2, 3] which contains 5 elements, the continued fraction for 1+1/2+1/3+1/11+1/16+1/17 is [2, 21, 1, 17, 1, 1, 2, 4] which contains 8 elements, hence a(6)=17

PROG
