The following 'greedy' sequence is formed by summing unit fractions until
the sum is 1, and repeating using up the 'left over' fractions:
(according to my BASIC program implementation: could be errors due to
accuracy of representation)
- anyone else find this interesting, or seen this before?
Likely needs some more investigation before thinking about submitting to
Perhaps related to the The Greedy Algorithm for Unit Fractions:
I guess it may not be known if all of the sub-sequences terminate?
