COMMENTS
Decree that row 1 is (1) and row 2 is (2). For n >=3, row n consists of numbers in decreasing order generated as follows: x+1 for each x in row n-1 together with 1/(1+x) for each x in row n-2. It is easy to prove that row n consists of F(n) numbers, where F = A000045 (the Fibonacci numbers), and that every positive rational number occurs exactly once.

EXAMPLE
First 6 rows of the array of rationals:
1/1
2/1
3/1 ... 1/2
4/1 ... 3/2 ... 1/3
5/1 ... 5/2 ... 4/3 ... 2/3 ... 1/4
6/1 ... 7/2 ... 7/3 ... 5/3 ... 5/4 ... 3/4 ... 2/5 ... 1/5
The denominators, by rows: 1,1,1,2,1,2,3,1,2,3,3,4,1,2,3,3,4,4,5,5.
