COMMENTS
Generalized harmonic numbers are defined as H(m,k) = Sum_{j=1..m} 1/j^k. Alternating generalized harmonic numbers are defined as H'(m,k) = Sum_{j=1..m} (-1)^(j+1)/j^k.
Note that {a(n)} contains the following geometric progressions: ((16843-1)/3)*16843^m found by Max Alekseyev, ((16843-1)/2)*16843^m found by Max Alekseyev, ((16843-1)*2/3)*16843^m, (16843-1)*16843^m, 20826*21647^m found by Max Alekseyev, ((2124679-1)/3)*2124679^m, ((2124679-1)/2)*2124679^m, ((2124679-1)*2/3)*2124679^m, (2124679-1)*2124679^m. Here {16843, 2124679} = A088164 are the only two currently known Wolstenholme Primes: primes p such that {2p-1} choose {p-1} == 1 mod p^4. See more details in Comments at A128672 and A125581.
