COMMENTS

Conjecture: the difference sequence of A206911 consists of 2s and 3s, and the ratio (number of 3s)/(number of 2s) tends to a number between 3.5 and 3.6.
Similar conjectures can be stated for difference sequences based on jointly ranked sets, such as A206903, A206906, A206928, A206805, A206812, and A206815.

EXAMPLE

Let S(n)=1+1/2+1/3+...+1/n and L(n)=log(n+1). Then
L(1)<S(1)<L(2)<L(3)<S(2)<L(4)<L(5)<S(3)<L(6)<..., so that
A206911=(2,5,8,...).


MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Sum[1/k, {k, 1, n}]; z = 300;
g[n_] := N[Log[n + 1]];
c = Table[f[n], {n, 1, z}];
s = Table[g[n], {n, 1, z}];
j = Sort[Union[c, s]];
p[n_] := Position[j, f[n]]; q[n_] := Position[j, g[n]];
Flatten[Table[p[n], {n, 1, z}]] (* A206911 *)
Flatten[Table[q[n], {n, 1, z}]] (* A206912 *)
