Of course you are correct; I’m not sure how I got myself confused.  A014537 is the sequence I was looking for.


Is the diagonalization 1,3,4550,… interesting enough for an OEIS entry?

4 - 1674


Unless I'm wrong it should be 4, not 5, for n=1 above,

and more generally, A4080(2n), for obvious reasons :


Clearly this idea could be generalized, i.e. where Hq(k) is the qth harmonic number sum_{i=1..k} 1/(qi).


which is the same as H(k)/q, whence your sequence should be A4080(qn).
