T. D. Noe, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..1000

FORMULA

a(n) = A103762(n) - n + 1. - T. D. Noe, Jun 26 2012

EXAMPLE

a(3)=5 because 1/3 + 1/4 + 1/5 + 1/6 < 1 (4 terms), but 1/3 + 1/4 + 1/5 + 1/6 + 1/7 >= 1 (5 terms).

MATHEMATICA

i = 0; s = 0; Table[While[s < 1, i++; s = s + 1/i]; s = s - 1/n; i - n + 1, {n, 100}] (* T. D. Noe, Jun 26 2012 *)
