COMMENTS

Numerators from the ordering of positive rational numbers by increasing balanced ternary representation of the "factorization" of positive rational numbers into terms of A186285 (prime powers with a power of three as exponent).

FORMULA

The balanced ternary representation of n

    n = Sum(i=0..1+floor(log_3(2|n|)) n_i * 3^i, n_i in {-1,0,1},

  is taken as the representation of the "factorization" of the positive rational number c(n)/d(n) into terms from A186285

    c(n)/d(n) = Prod(i=0..1+floor(log_3(2|n|)) (A186285(i+1))^(n_i), where A186285(i+1) is the (i+1)th prime power with exponent being a power of 3. Then a(n) is the numerator, i.e., c(n).

EXAMPLE

The balanced ternary digits {-1,0,+1} are represented here as {2,0,1}.
