A115587 a(n) = denominator of b(n), where b(1) = 1, b(n+1) = Sum_{k=1..n} b(k)^((-1)^(n-k)). 4

EXAMPLE

{b(n)} begins 1, 1, 2, 4, 13/2, 43/4, ...

So b(7) = 1 + 1 + 1/2 + 4 + 2/13 + 43/4 = 905/52 and therefore a(7) = 52.

MAPLE

b[1]:=1: for n from 1 to 14 do b[n+1]:=sum(b[k]^((-1)^(n-k)), k=1..n): a[n]:=denom(b[n]) od: seq(a[n], n=1..14); # Emeric Deutsch, Mar 30 2006

MATHEMATICA

b[n_] := b[n] = If[n == 1, 1, Sum[b[k]^((-1)^(n - k - 1)), {k, n - 1}]]; Array[Denominator@ b@ # &, 14] (* Michael De Vlieger, Sep 30 2017 *)
