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”).

(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A109670 a(1) = 1; a(n) is the smallest integer greater than a(n-1) such that the largest element in the simple continued fraction for S(n)=1/a(1)+1/a(2)+...+1/a(n) equals 2^n. 0

EXAMPLE

The continued fraction for S(5) = 1 + 1/4 + 1/30 + 1/85 + 1/91 is [1, 3, 3, 1, 2, 1, 11, 32, 5] where the largest element is 32 = 2^5 and 91 is the smallest integer > 85 with this property.

MATHEMATICA
