T = 1

- (1/2 + 1/4 + 1/6 + ... + 1/(2m_1))

+ (1/3 + 1/5 + 1/7 + ... + 1/(2m_2+1))

- (1/(2m_1+2) + 1/(2m_1+4) + ... + 1/(2m_3)

+ (1/(2m_2+3) + 1/(2m_2+5) + ... + 1/(2m_4+1))

- (1/(2m_3+2) + 1/(2m_3+4) + ... + 1/(2m_5)

+ (1/(2m_4+3) + 1/(2m_4+5) + ... + 1/(2m_6+1))

- ...

where the partial sums of the terms from 1 through the end of rows 0, 1, ... are respectively 1, just < -2, just > 3, just < -4, just > 5, etc.

Every positive number appears exactly once as a denominator in T.

The series T is a divergent rearrangement of the conditionally convergent series Sum_{ j>=1} (-1)^j/j which has the entire real number system as its set of limit points.

EXAMPLE

1 - (1/2 + 1/4 + 1/6 + ... + 1/454) = -2.002183354..., which is just less than -2; so a(1) = 2m_1 = 454.

1 - (1/2 + 1/4 + 1/6 + ... + 1/454) + (1/3 + 1/5 + ... + 1/45891) = 3.000021113057..., which is just greater than 3; so a(1) = 2m_2 + 1 = 45891.
