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 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

Numbers with a digit 4 (A011534) have asymptotic density 1, i.e., here almost all terms are removed from the harmonic series, which makes convergence less surprising. See A082839 (the analog for digit 0) for more information about such so-called Kempner series. - M. F. Hasler, Jan 13 2020
