Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 56th year, we are closing in on 350,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 9,700 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

COMMENTS

The idea of this sequence comes from the 1st exercise of "sélection de la délégation française" in 2005 for IMO 2006 where it was asked to prove that prime(n) divides N(n) [See reference].

The first fractions N(n)/D(n) are 9/8, 2035/1728, 28567/24000, 19164113947/16003008000, 25535765062457/21300003648000, ...

EXAMPLE

For prime(4) = 7 then 1 + 1/2^3 + 1/3^3 + 1/4^3 + 1/5^3 + 1/6^3 = 28567/24000 and 28567/7 = 4081, a(4) = 4081.
