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”).

A084337 Rearrangement of positive integers so that the successive ratios (of the larger to the smaller term) are all distinct integers. a(m)/a(m-1) = a(k)/a(k-1) iff m = k (assuming a(m) > a(m-1), otherwise the ratio a(m-1)/a(m) is to be considered). Priority is given to smallest number not included earlier rather than to the successive ratio that has not occurred earlier. 1
