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(k1)), and f(k) = f(k1)  r(k)/n(k). Then x = r(1)/n(1) + r(2)/n(2) + r(3)/n(3) + ... , the rEgyptian fraction for x.
See A269993 for a guide to related sequences.

EXAMPLE

EulerMascheroni constant = 1/(1*2) + 1/(3*5) + 1/(5*19) + 1/(7*6299) + ...


MATHEMATICA

r[k_] := 1/(2k1); 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 = EulerGamma; Table[n[x, k], {k, 1, z}]
