COMMENTS

Decree that (row 1) = (1).  For n >= 2, row n consists of numbers in increasing order generated as follows:  x+1 for each x in row n-1 together with -3/x for each nonzero x in row n-1, where duplicates are deleted as they occur.  The number of numbers in row n is A243930(n).  Conjecture:  every rational number occurs exactly once in the array.

EXAMPLE

First 7 rows of the array of rationals:

1/1

-3/1 .. 2/1

-2/1 .. -3/2 .. 3/1

-1/1 .. -1/2 .. 3/2 ... 4/1

-3/4 .. 0/1 ... 1/2 ... 5/2 .. 5/1 .. 6/1

-6/1 .. -6/5 .. -3/5 .. 1/4 .. 7/2 .. 7/1

-12/1 . -5/1 .. -6/7 .. -3/7 . -1/5 . 2/5 . 5/4 . 9/2 . 8/1

The numerators, by rows:

  1,-3,2,-2,-3,3,-1,-1,3,4,-3,0,1,5,5,6,-6,6,-3,1,7,7,-12,-5,-6,-3,-1,2,5,9,8.

MATHEMATICA

z = 13; g[1] = {1}; f1[x_] := x + 1; f2[x_] := -3/x;  h[1] = g[1];

b[n_] := b[n] = DeleteDuplicates[Union[f1[g[n - 1]], f2[g[n - 1]]]];

h[n_] := h[n] = Union[h[n - 1], g[n - 1]];

g[n_] := g[n] = Complement [b[n], Intersection[b[n], h[n]]]

u = Table[g[n], {n, 1, z}]

v = Delete[Flatten[u], 23]
