 A224763 Define a sequence of rationals by S(1)=1; for n>=1, write S(1),...,S(n) as XY^k, Y nonempty, where the fractional exponent k is maximized, and set S(n+1)=k; sequence gives denominators of S(1), S(2), ... 2

 OFFSET 1,5 COMMENTS k is the "fractional curling number" of S(1),...,S(n). The infinite sequence S(1), S(2), ... is a fractional analog of Gijswijt's sequence A090822. For the first 1000 terms, 1 <= S(n) <= 2. Is this always true? See A224762 for definition and Maple program. LINKS Allan Wilks, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10000 (terms 1..1000 from by N. J. A.
