COMMENTS
Suppose that m >= 3, and define sets h(n) of positive rational numbers as follows: h(n) = {n} for n = 1..m, and thereafter, h(n) = Union({x+1: x in h(n-1), {x/(x+1) : x in h(n-m)}), with the numbers in h(n) arranged in decreasing order. Every positive rational lies in exactly one of the sets h(n). For the present array, put m = 4 and (row n) = h(n); the number of numbers in h(n) is A003269(n-1). (For m = 3, see A243712.)
