 OFFSET 1,4 COMMENTS This sequence is the lexicographically earliest Egyptian fraction (denominators only) describing the minimum largest denominator given in A030659. Row 2 = [0,0] corresponds to the fact that 1 cannot be written as an Egyptian fraction with 2 (distinct) terms. REFERENCES Mohammad K. Azarian, Sylvester's Sequence and the Infinite Egyptian Fraction Decomposition of 1, Problem 958, College Mathematics Journal, Vol. 42, No. 4, September 2011, p. 330.
