COMMENTS

The von Staudt-Clausen decomposition of nonzero Bernoulli numbers (see A164555 and A006954) states B(0)=1, B(1) = 1/2 = 1-1/2, B(2) = 1/6 = 1-1/2-1/3, B(4) = -1/30 = 1-1/2-1/3-1/5 etc.

We consider the denominators of the fractions in these sums, one sum per row. The first term in the sums is essentially the sequence of two 1's followed by A000146; this contributes a first column to this sequence here compared with table A080092.
