COMMENTS

Suppose that r is a sequence of rational numbers r(k) <= 1 for k >= 1, and that x is an irrational number in (0,1).  Let f(0) = x, n(k) = floor(r(k)/f(k-1)), and f(k) = f(k-1) - r(k)/n(k).  Then x = r(1)/n(1) + r(2)/n(2) + r(3)/n(3) + ... , the r-Egyptian fraction for x.

See A269993 for a guide to related sequences.

EXAMPLE

log(2) = 1/2 + 1/(2*3) + 1/(3*13) + ...

MATHEMATICA

r[k_] := 1/k; f[x_, 0] = x; z = 10;

n[x_, k_] := n[x, k] = Ceiling[r[k]/f[x, k - 1]]

f[x_, k_] := f[x, k] = f[x, k - 1] - r[k]/n[x, k]

x = Log[2]; Table[n[x, k], {k, 1, z}]
