 OFFSET 1,5 COMMENTS Let S be the set of numbers defined by these rules:  1 is in S, and if nonzero x is in S, then x + 1 and -1/x are in S.  Then S is the set of all rational numbers, produced in generations as follows: g(1) = (1), g(2) = (2, -1), g(3) = (3, -1/2, 0), g(4) = (4,-1/3,1/2),... For n > 4, once g(n-1) = (c(1),...,c(z)) is defined, g(n) is formed from the vector (c(1)+1, -1/c(1), c(2)+1, -1/c(2),...,c(z)+1, -1/c(z)) by deleting previously generated elements.  Let S' denote the sequence formed by concatenating the generations.
