A350560 Denominators of the fractional, multiplicative Van Eck Sequence f(n): for n >= 2, if there exists an m < n such that f(m) = f(n), take the largest such m. If f(n)=1, set f(n+1) = 1/(n-m); otherwise, if f(n) != 1, set f(n+1) = f(n)+f(m)*(n-m). If no m exists such that f(m) = f(n), then set f(n+1)=1. Start with f(1)=1 and f(2)=0. a(n) = denominator(f(n)). 1
